Center for Negative Carbon Emissions

Learn more about your impact

The Center for Negative Carbon Emissions at ASU is advancing carbon management technologies that can capture carbon dioxide directly from ambient air in an outdoor operating environment. We are aiming to have negative carbon emissions, which goes beyond current efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Your gift supports this critical work through funding for student support, materials and equipment, and advances research efforts around direct air capture.

We're not just aiming to bring carbon dioxide emissions down; we're aiming to have negative carbon emissions capturing more than we produce using our artificial and reusing it."

Impact of Donor Support

  • More learners can pursue higher education. In 2022, 22,000 donors contributed $66.3 million for scholarships.
  • More students succeed. ASU ranks #1 among the state’s public universities for its 86% first-year retention rate thanks in part to donor-funded student success initiatives.
  • And donors helped ASU offer more than 4,500 hours of free tutoring.

We choose to invest in ASU because of its agility, speed and focus on innovation. The Swette Center engages in cross-disciplinary research and collaborates with many partners, including private sector leaders, to create food systems change.”
