The next few decades will require billions of tonnes of carbon dioxide to be pulled from the air and permanently stored to address climate change. The competition to engineer a global-scale gigatonne carbon management system has already led to hundreds of proposed technology solutions, of which only a few will lead to the next billion-dollar companies of the 21st century.
Join Paul Dauenhauer, Lanny & Charlotte Schmidt Professor and MacArthur Fellow at the University of Minnesota as he discusses how these future carbon companies will win by achieving the most energy-efficient and lowest-cost processing systems that will provide carbon offsets at scale that the entire world can afford.
This ACS Webinar is moderated by Mark Jones, Creative Director, MJPhD, LLC and co-produced with the open access journal, ACS Engineering Au.
What You Will Learn
- How to best evaluate carbon sequestration technologies
- How carbon offsets will achieve a reasonable price
- How carbon sequestration will scale to billions of tonnes of carbon dioxide per year
- Overcoming the Entropy Penalty of Direct Air Capture for Efficient Gigatonne Removal of Carbon Dioxide - Open access publication in ACS Engineering AU regarding the topic by the speaker.
What an attendee said about this ACS Webinar!
ACS webinars such as today's webinar on scalable carbon sequestration provide good overviews of current chemical issues and breath throughs. The speaker was very good and the references very helpful for following up some of the topics in more depth.
