Bill Gates lists EIT Climate-KIC’s Climeworks on 2019 Breakthrough Technologies list

Published by Catherine Ouvrard

Bill Gates was invited to be the first guest curator of the MIT Technology Review‘s 10 Breakthrough Technologies. Climeworks, supported by EIT Climate-KIC, was listed as one of three key players in ‘catching’ carbon dioxide from the air and storing it safely.

The article reports that “Zurich-based Climeworks’s direct air capture plant in Italy will produce methane from captured carbon dioxide and hydrogen, while a second plant in Switzerland will sell carbon dioxide to the soft-drinks industry.”
