Swiss renewable fuels and C02 extraction company, Climeworks, has opened its third Direct Air Capture facility.  The plant, located in Troia, Apulia (Italy), uses solar energy to power an alkaline electrolyser to generate hydrogen while simultaneously filtering carbon dioxide from the air.  The two are then combined and methanated (a process called Power-to-Gas) and used to fuel natural gas lorries. The Italian plant is slated to run for 4,000 hours over 17 months and is capable of filtering 150 tons of C02 from the air per year, and 240 cubic meters of hydrogen per hour.
