Airbus and a number of major airlines—Air Canada, Air France-KLM, easyJet, International Airlines Group, LATAM Airlines Group, Lufthansa Group and Virgin Atlantic—have signed Letters of Intent (LoI) to explore opportunities for a future supply of carbon removal credits from direct air carbon capture technology. Direct Air Carbon Capture and Storage (DACCS) involves filtering and removing CO 2 emissions directly from the air using high powered fans. Once removed from the air, the CO 2 is stored in geologic reservoirs. As the aviation industry cannot capture CO 2 emissions released into the atmosphere at source, a direct air carbon capture and storage solution would allow the sector to extract the equivalent amount of emissions from its operations directly from atmospheric air. Carbon removals via direct air capture technology complement other solutions that deliver CO 2 reductions, such as Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), by addressing remaining emissions that cannot be directly […]
