Carbon Engineering

Carbon Engineering (2009, 16 staff; Squamish, BC; carbonengineering.com)

This company now has a proof-of-concept plant in Squamish, British Columbia, that can directly capture 1 ton of carbon from ambient air. It seeks to construct a plant in Texas by 2023 to remove 1m tons of CO2 from the environment per year, offsetting emissions of 250,000 cars, at a cost of $100-$150/ton, in contrast to $15-$50 cost per ton for removal of the same amount of CO2 by planting trees.
