The Open Air Collective’s next live event is a couple of hours away and it’ll be about a different take on how to store carbon permanently – carbon sequestration in the built environment! Presenting this fascinating topic will be Chris Magwood, Director of the Endeavour Centre which focuses on zero impact construction.
The event is set for Tuesday, September 28, 2021, at 12pm ET and you can follow this link to listen in.
Chris recently completed his MA at Trent University, studying carbon storage potential of the built environment. His thesis, Opportunities for Carbon Capture and Storage in Building Materials was published in April, 2019 and he has been working on projects related to carbon sequestration in the built environment ever since.
He has also authored seven books on sustainable building, including: Essential Sustainable Home Design (2017), Essential Hempcrete Construction (2016) and Making Better Buildings (2014) and contributed a chapter to the book The New Carbon Architecture. He is co-editor of the Sustainable Building Essentials series from New Society Publishers. He is currently at work on a new book, Building Beyond Zero: New Ideas for Carbon Smart Architecture (Island Press).
The Open Air Collective – a network of volunteers who collaborate on shared projects that push Direct Air Carbon Capture forward in the real world – launched a series of webinars focused on carbon capture technology and carbon dioxide removal several weeks ago. You can also watch the previous episode of “This is CDR” where Dr. David Goldberg from Columbia LDEO talked about geologic sequestration of CO2 in New York.
