Canadian Startup Plans On Sucking CO2 Right From The Air To Combat Global Warming


A Canadian startup, Carbon Engineering, based in Squamish, came up with an innovatory solution to combat global warming. Namely, they plan on sucking the CO2 from the air and transform it into fuel.

Even though it sounds weird, the idea has its basis in science, as a study carried out by the Canadian company, Carbon Engineering, and the researchers from the Harvard University concluded that such a method, known as direct air capture, can indeed work.

“Yes, we’re absolutely confident. I don’t just believe it, I know it. This is based upon an existing facility. This is not a PowerPoint calculation. It’s a real facility. We’ve done real testing. We’re using real equipment from real suppliers that we’ve talked to,” said Steve Oldham from the Carbon Engineering for Global News.

“We’re going to make a completely clean gas. That gasoline or diesel or jet fuel will work with any existing vehicle,” added Steve Oldham before adding that Carbon Engineering’s method might successfully help the transportation industry switch to clean fuels.

As we speak, there are 7 international companies struggling to develop a method to suck the CO2 from the air to diminish the effects of climate change. Among these companies, Climeworks from Switzerland is the closest one to deploy such a method as it has already built a plant in this regard.

Despite this aspect, Carbon Engineering has a huge advantage over its competitors, namely, it’s offering this method at incredibly low prices for this emerging industry.

According to the Canadian startup’s spokesmen, the company can suck the CO2 from the air ar such low prices because the method they designed is based on materials and technologies that are already commercialized worldwide. Additionally, Carbon Engineering is very confident their method will help the fight against global warming.
