"Static and Transportable Carbon Capture"


Although still in its infancy, carbon recapture could become a viable solution for roadside emissions. Small-scale, efficient carbon capture installments along the roadway could scrub the air as it becomes polluted by passing vehicles. The transportation sector is a huge emitter of greenhouse gasses, and mobile carbon capture could help decrease emissions as we slowly transition into electric and emission-less vehicles. Direct Air Capture (DAC) devices could be placed along highways and congested city streets to catch the emissions of passing vehicles. Companies could be incentivized to install DAC devices directly onto their large fleets. Prototypes of this project are still in development, but advancements could overcome the devices' current challenges — a resource-intense capture process and commercial viability.
