The world’s first and largest climate-positive direct air capture and storage plant, making direct air capture and storage a reality. The launch of Orca was not only a monumental moment for Climeworks but the direct air capture industry as a whole.
"Orca" is the name of Climeworks' new direct air capture and storage plant in Iceland. It takes carbon dioxide removal to the next level by combining Climeworks' direct air capture technology with the underground storage of carbon dioxide provided by Carbfix. Orca will capture 4000 tons of CO₂ per year - making it the world's biggest climate-positive facility to date. Using Climeworks state of the art technology is one of the most impactful ways to stop climate change.
