Gutknecht, Valentin; Snæbjörnsdóttir, Sandra Ósk; Sigfússon, Bergur; Aradóttir, Edda Sif; Charles, Louise (2018): Creating a carbon dioxide removal solution by combining rapid mineralization of CO 2 with direct air capture. In: Energy Procedia 146, S. 129–134. DOI: 10.1016/j.egypro.2018.07.017.

„As a part of the EU-funded CarbFix2 project, Climeworks and Reykjavik Energy have partnered to combine direct air capture (DAC) technology with the injection of CO2 into basalts, for permanent storage by mineralization of the injected carbon. This is the world’s first DAC installation that is combined with mineral storage of CO2. There is large potential for further optimization and substantial scale up of this joint operation. The organizations are developing an integrated CO2 removal solution that may be expanded and applied globally. This type of solution has been recognized as a crucial component in efforts to mitigate global warming.“
