Direct air capture (DAC) refers to a range of technologies that capture carbon dioxide (CO2) from ambient air. These technologies include chemical scrubbing processes that capture CO2 through absorption or adsorption separation processes. DAC can also refer to processes that involve rapid mineralization of CO2 at the Earth's surface, termed mineral carbonation.
