The Clean Energy Ministerial CCUS Initiative is happy to invite you to attend a webinar on Direct Air Capture of CO2.

According to the 2018 report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, most future emission reduction pathways that enable to limit global average temperature increases to 1.5˚C require the deployment of some form of carbon dioxide removal. Direct air capture (DAC) is a process of capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) directly from the ambient air, as opposed to capturing from point sources such as a cement factory or power plant, and generating a concentrated stream of CO2 for permanent underground storage, or for utilization in products.

The development of and the global attention on DAC has significantly increased over the past years, with both research speeding up and various commercial offerings now being available. This webinar will hear expert interventions on why direct air capture is so important, what types of solutions are available, as well as where some of the key R&D focus areas might be in the future.


The webinar will be held on Tuesday 21 April 2020 at 10:00 Eastern Daylight Time (UTC-4) / 16:00 Central European Time (UTC+2). The session will last approximately one hour.
