geoengineering explained: the advantages and disadvantages of ambient air capture

Ambient air capture, a form of carbon dioxide sequestration (CDR), involves building large machines that can remove carbon dioxide directly from the ambient air so that the captured CO2 can be stored elsewhere.

The three steps of the air capture process are:

  1. Contacting the air
  2. Absorption or adsorption on a sorbent
  3. Recovery of the sorbent
