Open Air Collective have invited expert Dr Habib Azarabadi. He is a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow with Arizona State University’s Center for Negative Carbon Emissions. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in Tehran, Iran, and earned a Masters and PhD in Sustainable Engineering from Arizona State University.
Habib’s research focuses on environmental and economic analysis of direct air carbon capture technology, as well as positioning DACC technology in the existing energy infrastructure and scaling through mass production.
Here are some of his publications:
Buying Down the Cost of Direct Air Capture, May 26, 2021, Industrial Engineering and Chemistry Research.
What It Will Take To Achieve Affordable Carbon Removal, June 24, 2021, MIT Technology Review.
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 dioxide removal several weeks ago. You can also watch the fourth episode of “This is CDR” which discussed oceanic carbon direct removal.
