Fahr et al. (2021): Assessing the physical potential capacity of direct air capture with integrated supply of low-carbon energy sources

Steffen Fahr, Julian Powell, Alice Favero, Anthony J. Giarrusso, Ryan P. Lively, Matthew J. Realff IN: Greenhouse. Gas. Sci. Technology 0:1–18 (2021); DOI: 10.1002/ghg.2136

This study explores the potential of low-carbon energy sources to supply power and heat to the DAC process in a dedicated, self-sufficient system tailored for each energy source. Solar, geothermal, woody biomass, wind, and nuclear energy sources are assessed for their global energy supply potential and possible land use requirements.
