Geothermal powerstation that achieves negative emissions #sustainability #innovation #thinkdifferently #rebootme

Climeworks and Reykjavik Energy have started running the first power plant confirmed to produce “negative emissions” — that is, it’s removing more CO2 than it puts out. The geothermal station in Hellsheidi, Iceland is using a Climeworks module and the plant’s own heat to snatch CO2 directly from the air via filters, bind it to

Challenge the design standard #thinkdifferently
