LATAM takes another step forward on its path to decarbonization

LATAM Group announced a strategy to explore the elimination of CO2 through the direct air carbon capture and storage (DACCS).

It signed a letter of intent with Airbus and in collaboration with Air Canada, easyJet, International Airlines Group, Lufthansa Group and Virgin Atlantic.

It is the first group of airlines in Latin America to explore this technology.

“DACCS represents an innovative way to not only remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, but also has the potential to play a role in the development of sustainable synthetic aviation fuels,” said Juan Jose Toha, Director of Corporate Affairs and Sustainability.

It is part of the group’s sustainability strategy to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

DACCS allows up to 90% of CO2 emissions to be filtered and removed from the air using fans and absorbers.

After filtering or removing CO2 emissions, it safely and permanently stores it in depleted underground oil and gas fields or deep salt formations.
