Airbus: an eco-friendly investment
Airbus is investing in Carbon Engineering, a Canadian-based climate solutions company that operates the largest direct air carbon capture (DACC) research & development facility worldwide.
“We are proud to be investing in Carbon Engineering, reaffirming our commitment to the use of direct air carbon capture as a two-fold solution for the decarbonisation of the aviation industry,” said Karine Guenan, VP zero-e ecosystem, Airbus.
DACC is a high-potential technology that involves capturing CO2 emissions directly from the air using high powered fans. Once removed from the air, the CO2 can be used to produce power-to-liquid sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) that is drop-in compatible with today’s aircraft. (cj)
