Achieving Net Zero with Direct Air Capture
July 14, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm PDTFree
Limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees C will require that billions of tons of carbon dioxide be removed from the atmosphere. Technologies like Direct Air Capture (DAC), which can be deployed globally at megaton-scale, will play a critical role in achieving this target. This talk will review DAC technologies, sequestration and utilization options, and the economic development potential from the build-out of this clean infrastructure.
