The Tiny Swiss Company That Thinks It Can Help Stop Climate Change

Read about how a small Swiss company called Climeworks is working on commercial products to remove carbon dioxide from the atomosphere.  Climeworks captures CO2 from air with the world’s first commercial carbon removal technology. Their direct air capture plants remove CO2 from the atmosphere to supply to customers to unlock a negative emissions future. Climeworks was founded by engineers Christoph Gebald and Jan Wurzbacher, who decided to build a company together on the day they met at university in 2003. Direct air capture is a disruptive approach for mitigating the increasing CO2 concentration in the atmosphere. Industrialising direct air capture technology in turn requires disruptive engineering approaches. New York Times Magazine's Jon Gertner writes about the company in this week's magazine.
