SKYscrubber - Removing CO2 From The Air

Nuclear powered machines to suck climate changing CO2 back out of the air might be powerful enough to overcome the
 "The atmosphere is too big and the CO2 too dilute." issues.

Air Contactor Carbon Capture

Air Contactor
("Scrubber" is the correct engineering term for an apparatus that removes gas impurities from another gas - such as air - or liquids.
"Air Contactor" is the descriptive name this website has adopted for non-authorized explorations into variants of Carbon Engineering's air contactor.)

Disclaimer:  This web page item is energy talk by an unassociated engineer inspired by Carbon Engineering's patented invention, not professional engineering advice.
The patented Carbon Engineering, Ltd., air contactor and CO2 Capture paper can be downloaded for free at:
http://rsta.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/370/1974/4380.full.pdf     23 page pdf.  They suggest using natural gas oxyfuel carbon captured heat.
1/2 ton gas CO2 per ton air CO2 captured.

A Nuclear Powered CO2-Capturing Air Contactor
(Below) Nuclear powered air CO2 scrubber that may be able to remove up to 4 million tons of CO2 from the air per year.

A High Temperature Gas-cooled Reactor (HTGR) that could power the above. 
The General Atomics EM2 HTGR appears to be hot enough to power the above Air Contactor.

The Chinese are building 40 of a lower-temperature HTGR for the Rongcheng Power Complex:

Footnotes & Links

This is a product being developed by Carbon Engineering, Ltd., Calgary, Canada. They have several pilot projects conceptually powered by carbon-captured natural gas.
Your author is using CE's public documents depicting their product as a template to explore, in a very preliminary sense, powering them with both electricity and high temperature pebble bed nuclear reactors.

This website is a draft. The candidate document's footnote numbers go with a private database. Copy the document's title and submit it to Google. The document may still be posted on the Internet.
