Climeworks develops, builds and operates Direct Air Capture (DAC) machines to capture CO₂ directly from the air, with 15 machines currently in operation. The captured carbon dioxide can either be recycled and reused as a raw material or completely removed from the air by safely storing it underground, permanently. 

The raw material, pure CO₂ gas, is used by customers in industries such as commercial agriculture, energy, food and beverage and automotive, for uses such as carbonating drinks or for producing carbon-neutral hydrocarbon fuels and materials. By using Climeworks’ CO₂, customers can reduce their overall emissions as well as lowering their dependence on fossil energy. 

Our unique carbon dioxide removal technology also offers businesses a permanent negative emissions solution for their sustainability strategy and for individuals it provides a way for them to remove their carbon footprint and contribute to a climate-positive world. 

Climeworks was founded by engineers, Christoph Gebald and Jan Wurzbacher, with a mission to inspire 1 billion people to remove CO₂ from the air, using our direct air capture technology. 

A climate-positive world requires us to act now by all means available. Let’s restore a healthy balance of CO₂ and reverse climate change. Will you join us?
