The largest device pumping CO2 from the air has started operating in Iceland – PRAVDA.sk

-

In Iceland, the largest facility in the world was put into operation on Wednesday, which absorbs carbon dioxide directly from the air and turns it into a stone deep below the earth’s surface. This was announced by the Swiss company Climeworks and the Icelandic company Carbfix, which built this device.

The treatment plant is called Orca, which refers to the Icelandic word “orca” meaning energy, according to the AFP agency. He adds that the device consists of four parts, each of which consists of two further metal boxes resembling containers such as those used in maritime transport.

According to the mentioned companies, the facility has to extract 4,000 tons of carbon dioxide from the air every year. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), this amount corresponds to the emissions produced by about 870 cars a year, according to AFP.

The device sucks carbon dioxide through fans into the collector, where it is then filtered and isolated. The carbon dioxide is then mixed with water and then pumped to a depth of 1000 meters underground, into a basalt substrate.

Some experts argue that such devices can become one of the main tools in the fight against climate change. Their critics point out that it is a disproportionately expensive technology and it may take decades for it to work on a large scale.
