In Iceland the world’s largest carbon capture factory went live

Factories are usually known for pumping carbon into the air and polluting the planet. Well now there is finally a factory that does completely the opposite. Iceland have unveiled the worlds largest factory that sucks CO2 out of the air.  

Climeworks, the firm operating the facility, said Orca is capable of drawing 4,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere annually. The gas will be converted into rock and stored below ground. Climeworks said that its facility is scalable and represents “a milestone in the direct air capture industry”.
