Setting DAC on Track: Strategies for Hub Implementation

In order for direct air capture (DAC) to achieve million-ton scale and be commercially viable, we need to start driving down the cost learning curve by building dozens of efficient and sustainable projects.

Fortunately, in late 2021, Congress made a down payment on early DAC projects with the passage of the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), which provided $3.5 billion in funding over five years for several DAC facilities through the Regional Direct Air Capture Hubs (DAC Hubs) program. As the first large-scale US deployments of DAC, these hubs are an opportunity to define the field with high-quality projects that create robust environmental and public health benefits, new jobs and economic opportunities, and broad community support.
