As carbon dioxide acts as a greenhouse gas, accelerating global warming, technologies that capture CO2 from the atmosphere offer the remarkable potential to mitigate some of the worst effects of climate change, potentially alleviating decades of damage.  However, most industrial scale carbon capture processes far exceed the $100 per kilogram of carbon extracted threshold required for economical deployment, so Team CAPTURE seeks to introduce the property of carbon capture to commercial-grade products, recognizing that consumers are often willing to pay 10-15% more for goods that offer societal benefit.
