#92 Transformational Carbon Capturing

Louise Charles shares:

  • The inspiration behind Climeworks disruptive and impactful technology
  • Why we need to go carbon negative – not just neutral
  • How Climeworks captures and filters CO2 from the air
  • The three positive uses for CO2 once it’s extracted from the air
  • The Challenges of CO2 mineralisation



Louise Charles is responsible for communications at Climeworks, helping spread Climeworks’ vision of capturing 1% of global emissions by 2025 far and wide.

Climeworks captures CO2 from air with the world’s first commercial carbon removal technology.

Louise previously worked with the UN and other fledgling spin-off companies across Europe. When she’s not communicating online/offline Louise can be found in the mountains ski touring, climbing or hiking.

“Our machines, which we call CO2 collectors filter CO2 from ambient air. The process is that we have a fan that’s drawing ambient air into the collector. The CO2 then sticks to filter material inside the collector. The collector is closed up and it’s heated up so the CO2 is released from the filter and can be collected and delivered” Louise Charles
