Orca and MammothHellisheiði, Iceland
The world’s first commercial Direct Air Capture deployments, paired with subsurface mineral storage.
Climeworks’ Orca is the first operational commercial direct air capture plant in the world, commissioned in 2021. Mammoth, with nearly 4 times the carbon removal capacity, is not far behind, scheduled for completion in 2024. Both plants store CO2 underground in durable mineral form, partnering with CarbFix, a leading Iceland-based innovator in the CO2 mineralization field.
