A Swedish startup claims to have become the first in the country to have committed to offsetting its carbon dioxide emissions using direct air capture technology.
Mentimeter, a tech company which provides interactive presentations, has chosen the Nordic DAC Group to facilitate the process.
The Nordic DAC Group’s first plant, which is expected to be fully operational in 2023, will extract up to 65 tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere on behalf of Mentimeter, representing the estimated carbon footprint the company had during 2019.
It plans to build an extensive network of direct air capture plants across the Nordic region in the next ten years.
Johnny Warström, CEO Mentimeter, said: “With this initiative, Mentimeter hopes to trigger even more startups and companies in Sweden to commit to investing in a future we all can enjoy, and creating the market for carbon offsetting that is needed.”
