Climeworks staff is motivated by challenge. There is little as challenging as the biggest problem humanity has ever faced: climate change. Our technology can be used to go backwards, not only to stop climate change, but to reverse it.

Climeworks captures carbon dioxide from the air. Climeworks direct air capture plants capture CO2 with a patented filter and are powered by either waste or renewable energy. The air-captured carbon is sold to customers in the food, beverage and agriculture, and renewable fuels and materials markets. Climeworks also offers carbon dioxide removal by safely and permanently storing air-captured CO2 underground, thereby ultimately stopping climate change from reaching dangerous levels.
