Master thesis: Potential analysis of the integration of flexibly operated Direct Air Capture (DAC) plants in the heat and power system using the example of Hamburg

Moritz Rickert, Hamburg University of Applied Sciences,

For climate neutrality by 2045, Germany must compensate unavoidable residual greenhouse gas emissions by negative emission technologies such as direct air capture technology. This study explores the technical feasibility and economic viability of implementing flexibly operated DAC plants in Hamburg’s district heating system in 2045.
