A new direct air capture facility under construction in Texas, by Squamish, B.C.’s Carbon Engineering, is expected to become the world’s largest direct air capture plant when finished.

Direct air capture facilities can remove one million tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, or the equivalent of what can be done by 40 million trees.

The captured carbon can be converted into near carbon-neutral synthetic fuel and finally processed into clean liquid fuels for the transport sectors, including long-haul transport, marine and aviation.
