Up next on This Is CDR are Max Scholten and Noah McQueen from Heirloom who will talk about their innovative Direct Air Capture (DAC) technology that enhances the earth’s natural mineralization processes to create a cost-effective and highly scalable carbon direct removal pathway.
Registration is free and the event will be at 12:00pm ET (5pm GMT). You can sign-up here.
Max is the Head of Commercialization at Heirloom. He has spent the last ten years building software, hardware and robotics in financial services and autonomous vehicles.
Before Heirloom, he was responsible for bringing to market Nuro’s delivery service with some of the world’s largest partners, including Kroger, Walmart, Domino’s and CVS. At Heirloom he oversees the go-to-market, policy, and partnerships functions.
Noah is a co-founder and head of research at Heirloom. Noah’s expertise surrounds carbon capture and removal, with a focus on carbon mineralization technologies and direct air capture systems.
This includes process design, alongside the use of both techno-economic analyses and life cycle assessments to evaluate the technical and economic feasibility of carbon removal systems.
Noah holds a Ph.D. in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania and a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Colorado School of Mines.
