Open Air Collective’s live events continue this week with two guests from a very promosing project for carbon capture. “This is CDR” hosts Kelly Erhart and Tom Green from Project Vesta who will talk about coastal carbon capture as a carbon removal solution. They’ll also provide an update on how their team is progressing with their “carbon negative sand” project which we covered several months ago.
The event will be live on October 26th, 2021, at 12pm ET. Click this link to register and join.

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 earlier in 2021 and has now had over ten guests from across the carbon capture, utilization and removal spectrum. Here is the previous episode which featured Aaron Fitzgerald from Mars Materials who talked about plans to produce carbon fiber with CO2.
