Climeworks develops commercially viable, filter-based direct air capture (DAC) technology. By accessing Ansys simulation software, the company increased the filter capability of its DAC plants, streamlined the facilities’ energy consumption, and reduced fatigue and failure risk under mechanical loading cycles. Nathalie Casas, Head of Technology at Climeworks, explains the science behind carbon capture and Climeworks’ DAC technology.
“If we needed to build a machine every time we have a new idea, this would cost a lot and take a lot of time. But with simulation it’s done in two days.”
