Abstract

Results of economics and scaling measurements, atmospheric simulations, and laboratory experiments made a strong case to explore CO 2 extraction from air as an advanced CO 2 capture and sequestration technology. The process compared very favorably against renewable sources, e.g., solar, wind, or biomass. This scheme is attractive because it allows CO 2 sequestration without a costly change in the existing infrastructure. It collects the CO 2 from the transportation and other distributed power sources. It also retains carbon-based energy, which continues to be highly cost-effective, and it has the potential of restoring atmospheric CO 2 to pre-industrial levels providing insurance against any large and rapid climate change events in the future.
