Report Regarding Carbon Dioxide
There are alternatives to CO2 extraction
The alternatives are cost effective and
One of the Alternative is Direct Air Capture
It requires significant water and energy
Most of the DAC technologies use Sodium
DAC captures CO2 from the air directly.
DAC technology works at an affordable price
The technology gives Carbon dioxide that is
The CO2 that is obtained is also pure.
The obtained CO2 is kept underground.
This is to ensure that the costly emissions
are compensated for.
DIRECT AIR CAPTURE PROCESS
Direct Air Capture technologies mostly uses sodium
Use of sodium hydroxide is termed as Carbon
sodium hydroxide is a highly dangerous and caustic
The major hindrance to the use Carbon Engineering is
Sodium hydroxide is however a caustic and highly
IMPACTS OF DAC
The DAC technology affects climate stabilization
Reduction of emissions means the use of prolonged oil
This affects countries positively regarding energy
The impacts are similar for many geoengineering
This is however an aspect that is alarming
HINDRANCES TO DAC
The major hindrance is cost
The costs of extracting CO2 range from $94 to $232
However, the cost of the captured CO2 will be high
CO2 concentration in the air is more dilute
This is compared to the fuel gas that is in a coal plant.
Therefore, DAC works to overcome the Sherwood rule
The Rule states that the separation price balances
linearly with dilution.
The costs are inclusive of separation prices
Prices can be reduced through a couple of
Improvements can be made on longevity
Recovery of heat can be effective in cost
Sherwood rule can be overcome
