The Open Air Collective – a network of people who voluntarily collaborate on shared projects that push Direct Air Carbon Capture forward in the real world – is launching a series of webinars focused on carbon dioxide removal.
This week’s episode will air on Tuesday, August 10th between 12:00 PM – 12:45 PM EST. Joining the team will be Dr. Garrett Boudinot from Cornell University, who will talk about enhanced rock weathering (ERW), and how “rock dust” as a soil amendment has the potential to remove gigatons of CO2 from the atmosphere in the coming decades.
Mr. Boudinot is a Research Associate with Cornell’s Dept of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. He also works as a Community Science Fellow with the American Geophysical Union’s Thriving Earth Exchange and serves as a science advisor at ClimateMusic.
You can register for the carbon dioxide removal podcast through this link. And while you’re at it, you can also watch the first episode in the series where we got an introduction to CDR from Evvan Morton Ph.D., a researcher who examined the effectiveness of U.S. policies governing carbon dioxide emissions and explored the necessity for CO2 removal through political, technological, and ethical lenses.
