Exciting new developments in material sciences creates opportunities for gaseous direct air capture. These could be used for local remediation of specific pollution sources or applied against global atmospheric problems. With severe weather characterized by +45 degree Celsius /+113 degree Fahrenheit heat waves, air conditioning and refrigeration are a growing necessity. Unfortunately, this contributes to the problem they are intended to alleviate. Air conditioners' ubiquity also means they could serve as an in-place decentralized infrastructure for direct air capture. Several companies have already commercialized modular direct air capture, thus proving the technology for removing specific molecules from the atmosphererather than at the source-exists. For air conditioners to contribute to direct air capture, a low cost filter thatideally could be affixed to existing infrastructure- is required.
