IBM is working on a data center cooling system dubbed Thrive, which relies on a heat pump. The aim of the Thrive Project is to identify application scenarios for thermally driven heat pumps for heating and cooling in Switzerland. It will also develop heat pump technology with minimal electricity requirements designed for these scenarios, and analyze the impact of the technology on the energy landscape of Switzerland, including a sustainability assessment and benchmarking.
Carbon Engineering is working on the industrial-scale capture of CO2 from ambient air.
This video explains the technology behind direct capture of CO2 from the atmosphere and what Carbon Engineering is doing to commercialize air capture.
