Delivering Solutions to Reduce Global Emissions

1PointFive is a Carbon Capture, Utilization and Sequestration (CCUS) platform with a singular purpose: help curb global temperature rise to 1.5°C by 2050 through the commercialization of decarbonization solutions including Carbon Engineering's Direct Air Capture (DAC), AIR TO FUELS™ technologies and geologic sequestration.

The Role of
Carbon Removal 

Global temperatures are rising, and we must take action to prevent them from rising beyond 1.5°C to 2°C -- a scenario that could both endanger the planet and impact life for future generations.

There is a consensus, based on multiple projections conducted by governments, coalitions and international panels:  To avoid a 1.5°C or greater rise in global temperatures, immediate action is required.  

 

Achieving that goal will be a challenge. According to the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), limiting global temperature rise to 1.5°C will require removing approximately 10–20 Gigatons of carbon dioxide (CO₂) from the atmosphere each year.

 

Fortunately, a key technology has emerged that could reduce both future emissions and existing atmospheric CO₂: Direct Air Capture (DAC). This is where 1PointFive comes in.

 

We are leading the effort for industrial-scale commercialization of Carbon Engineering's Direct Air Capture technology.

Direct Air Capture 

Pulling CO₂ Directly From the Atmosphere

With technology that pulls CO₂ directly from the atmosphere, Direct Air Capture facilities can be placed in strategic locations—near sequestration hubs, for example—rather than at the sources of emissions, like manufacturing or power plants. This will provide a way to remove CO₂ currently in the atmosphere, including historical emissions, and address emissions from hard-to-decarbonize industries with mobile sources, such as aviation, maritime and long-haul trucking.

Geologic Sequestration

Putting Carbon Back Where it Came From

Once atmospheric CO₂ is captured, what can you do with it? We’re putting carbon in its place through our vision to build sequestration hubs, in which captured CO₂ will be safely and permanently stored deep underground within geologic structures. Learn more about this practical and scalable CO₂ storage option, which traps captured CO₂ more than a mile underground.

AIR TO FUELS™

Fueling
Next-Generation Transportation 

Transportation industries are in the market for a next-generation, low-carbon fuel that can help reduce their emissions and support global climate targets. The AIR TO FUELS process will take CO₂ captured from the atmosphere and converts it into low-carbon fuels with up to a 90% emissions reduction factor when compared to conventional fuels. 1PointFive plans to

co-locate AIR TO FUELS plants with Direct Air Capture facilities.
