by Violet George on

Air Canada announced this week it will be investing C$6.75 million (US$5.07 million) in direct air capture solutions developed by Carbon Engineering (CE). The Canadian airline has joined the ranks of other aviation industry players, who are interested in reducing their carbon footprint. Earlier this year, Airbus also invested in carbon dioxide removal (CDR) by striking a deal with Carbon Engineering for the purchase of  400,000 metric tons of CDR credits.
