Research & Development


VIOLET VIOLET is a collaborative OpenAir mission to develop and evolve the world’s first miniature open-source Direct Air Carbon Capture (DACC) machine. DACC machines suck carbon right out of the air and will be an essential part of reversing climate change and optimizing our atmosphere for civilization in the 21st Century. Chamber Engineering This category is for the engineering , plumbing , fluid dynamics and thermodynamics of the VIOLET DACC unit itself. Cyan Electronics, Sensors, Controls This VIOLET sub-category spans sensors , controllers , Arduino , and other digital electronic topics. Please keep fans and other physical output discussion topics under the Chamber sub-category. Sorbent Tester Sorbent The scope of this sub-category spans the chemistry of the sorbent itself, the preparation protocols of the sorbent for use, the cartridges prepared for or from the sorbent and carbon loading and scrubbing. Carbon Forming Carbon Forming is a collaborative R&D mission that aims to embed CO2 removed from the air in 3D-printed objects through a distributed, solar powered, modular platform. The mission kicked off in early 2022 through the initiative of a small team of scientists, designers, engineers and artists located all over North America. By expanding this collaboration to include the insights, ideas and support of a much larger global community, the mission team aims to rapidly evolve the concept into a real world, functional prototype.
