Can CO2 be transformed into a valuable product (Part 1)?

A start-up company, Aether Diamonds, is trying to do exactly this, by extracting CO2 from the earth’s atmosphere and produce diamonds through a subsequent process. The company began in 2018, with a target to manufacture sustainable diamonds from atmospheric carbon, and by using a mix of direct air capture and other carbon removal methods that involve long-term carbon sequestration.

The initiative has a twofold impact – helps in the fight against the climate change and helps in the fight against violation of human rights in the diamond mining industry
