Recent Developments in Carbon Dioxide Removal Market

  • In October 2022, Carbon Engineering Ltd. and Occidental Petroleum Corp. started the construction of a carbon removal plant in the Permian Basin, U.S. The plant would have the capacity to draw 500,000 tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere per year using direct air capture technology.
  • In October 2022, Climeworks completed the commercial operations of its first-generation technology at its world’s first commercial direct air capture facility in Hinwil, Switzerland. The operation would help the company to sharpen the focus and achieve gigatons of CO2 by 2050.
  • In April 2021, Thermostat signed an agreement to supply DAC equipment to the Haru Oni eFuels pilot plant situated in Chile. The plant will be utilized for capturing carbon dioxide with electrolytic hydrogen for producing synthetic gasoline. The plant is designed to capture nearly 250 kilograms of CO2 per hour.
  • In July 2021, Carbfix announced a partnership with Aker Carbon Capture of Norway. This partnership will help combine the companies’ complementary technologies to offer the full CCS value chain in the global fight against climate change.

Demand – Drivers and Limitations

Following are the demand drivers for the global carbon dioxide removal market:

  • Favorable Government Policies Drive the Development of CDR
