The upcoming U.N. Climate Change Conference (COP28) has sparked debates about various technologies and innovations to tackle climate change, including Carbon Capture. Lorenzo Simonelli, CEO of Baker Hughes, discussed the scalability of carbon capture processes and highlighted policies in the U.S. and Europe that enable it. Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has also supported direct air capture through investments in companies like Climeworks. However, organizations like Greenpeace have criticized carbon capture, calling it a tool for greenwashing by oil and gas companies. Pope Francis emphasized the need to go beyond technological interventions in addressing climate change.
