Texas takes a giant leap in carbon capture

EHN Curators, Mar. 21, 2024

Texas is set to host a facility aimed at significantly reducing atmospheric CO2.

Nicola Jones reports for Yale Environment 360.

In short:

Texas-based 1PointFive is developing Stratos, a direct air capture plant, to remove 500,000 metric tons of CO2 annually by 2025, dwarfing current capabilities.

Direct air capture technology, though costly and energy-intensive, is scaling up globally with more than 100 plants in development, driven by government incentives and the urgent need to reduce atmospheric CO2.
