Our approach incorporates the possibility of stepwise CO2 purification in areas of the free atmosphere by spraying of alkaline compounds inside the clouds via an airplane. It causes significantly increases of the СО2 solubility in rain droplets during their gravitational fall to provide the effective carbon transport to the ground. Presented calculations show a considerable increase of the gas/water interface for perfect CO2 absorption. This future technology can compensate for annual carbon emission by method application at 0.42% – 0.14% of our planet surface.
