Description

The science, technology, and economics of large scale direct air capture (DAC) and Point-Source Carbon Capture (PCC) have all advanced greatly in the past decade. Since the signing of the Paris Agreement in 2015, “negative emissions technologies” have become necessary tools for climate mitigation efforts to succeed. One potential strategy to assist these efforts with an active area of research is the capturing of carbon through DAC and PCC. While large-scale DAC and PCC devices and systems have been designed, evaluated, and constructed in recent years, small-scale, consumer based devices have not received the same attention as their larger counterparts. This research evaluates the current and future feasibility of capturing carbon on a consumer-based, small-scale.
