“CarpeCarbon was awarded a funding of over €1.7 million from Tech4Planet, 360 Capital and other investors to finalize the development of its proprietary DAC technology and implement it in the 1st plant in Piedmont”
Cattura diretta dall’aria della CO<sub>2</sub>: in Piemonte il 1° impianto italiano

We’re excited to share that Rinnovabili.it has published an article highlighting our work in Turin on the Direct Air Capture (DAC) of CO2. This project is a crucial part of our mission to combat climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Key highlights from the article:

– Technological Innovation: Our project employs advanced DAC technology to absorb carbon dioxide directly from the atmosphere. This innovative approach is essential for achieving net-zero emissions, especially in sectors that are difficult to decarbonize. Our technology uses clean energy and does not depend on critical raw materials.

– Environmental Impact: By directly removing CO2 from the air, we aim to significantly mitigate climate change effects and contribute to global efforts to limit temperature rise. According to the latest IPCC report, keeping the global temperature around 1.5 degrees is now almost impossible without the use of CO2 removal technologies. The slower the transition proceeds, and thus the tighter the available carbon budget, the greater the need for technological solutions such as DAC.

– Economic and Social Benefits: The project is not only beneficial for the environment but also expected to create new jobs and drive technological advancements in our region, potentially positioning it as a leader in sustainable innovation.

This initiative underscores the importance of innovative solutions in addressing climate challenges and highlights the role of regional efforts in achieving global climate goals.
