Can Pulling Carbon from Air Make a Difference on Climate?
By Nicola Jones

Numerous technologies exist to extract carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and new companies are entering the field. But can CO2 ‘air capture’ scale up from a niche business to an industry that will lower atmospheric concentrations of CO2?

Air capture ‘is not that far away from being a really big piece of the climate puzzle,’ says one analyst.
