Those Bubbles in Your Soda May Someday Help Save the Planet
Climeworks AG is not the first company to figure out how to suck carbon dioxide out of the air. It may become the first to make money from it at an industrial scale. The Swiss company’s technology has a crack because it has customers and a business model that could make money. Its first client is a greenhouse in Zurich, which needs to boost the concentration of carbon dioxide around the plants it’s growing to optimize the photosynthesis process. Climeworks will produce the gas for about 100 Swiss francs ($100) per ton and selling it for about 200 francs to 300 francs.
