Tree 2.0 offers an innovative carbon removal solution crucial for transitioning to a low-carbon economy. Unlike traditional methods focusing on energy reduction, Tree 2.0 emphasises processing large air volumes. By treating 1.5 million cubic meters of air per ton of CO2 using high-pressure techniques, it achieves a 70x reduction in facility size and a 700x faster absorption rate. This approach yields a 5x cost advantage, tapping into mature technologies and readily available solvents.
