Sharing our insights on the DAC+S and CDR industry

On this page, we're sharing our own publications on various topics. We hope you enjoy diving into them!

Climeworks’ carbon removal production waterfall

When a DAC plant captures a CO₂ molecule, that molecule goes through several steps before it is permanently stored and a removal is produced. Here’s an overview of all the steps of a DAC plant’s CDR production and the factors influencing it.

Carbon removals actors join call for the distinction between reductions and removals

Carbon removal actors join call for the clear distinction between reductions and removals

In April 2022, Climeworks published a statement calling for a clear distinction between emissions reductions and carbon dioxide removal - in climate pathways, target setting and industry standards. The reactions have been very affirmative and while Climeworks initiated the statement, it became clear that it addresses a topic relevant to the broader carbon removal ecosystem.

Climeworks' calls for a clear distinction between emissions reductions and carbon removals

Climeworks' statement on the distinction between reductions and removals

Emissions reductions and carbon dioxide removal fulfil two fundamentally different purposes in solving the climate crisis and present differing dynamics. Hence, Climeworks believes that the two solutions should be clearly separated and treated differently, in line with climate science.
