Carbon Capture Plant in Switzerland

Salon has an interesting article on a carbon capture plant just starting up in Switzerland. The plant captures CO2 from the atmosphere for industrial purposes. Purposes like fertilizer for greenhouses is listed as one example.

In time, the Climeworks plant would like to extract upwards of 1% of the CO2 in the atmosphere. The reason being that if we can't get our carbon hunger under control, then let's try removing the gas from the atmosphere before it can do more harm. Cool idea and one that I hope will work.

Can the atmospheric processors from the Aliens movie (1986) be far behind?
