Carbon Removal

Air Miners 2020 Virtual Conference

AirMiners, a global community of scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs working on carbon negative technology, will convene its first conference, Foundations for a Carbon Negative Future (, on May 13th, 2020.  This conference was conceived by the community and will provide AirMiners members and anyone interested in learning the latest in climate action to share recent developments, network, and learn from each other.
The conference will take place May 13, 2020 from 10 AM PST to 4PM PST.
COP26 is postponed, but that doesn’t mean the climate action community is taking a break.  Sign up for AirMiners’ first virtual conference and go behind the scenes to get to know the carbon removal pioneers you’ve read about. Learn what hasn’t been reported yet, meet collaborators, and gain insights. Whether you’re brand new to the concept of carbon negative technologies and business or a battle-scarred innovator, you’ll enjoy the opening keynote by Dr Klaus Lackner, one of the inventors of direct air capture and a slate of panel discussions on business models, fundraising, and technology.

AirMiners is proud to declare that the entire conference will be carbon negative.  The carbon emissions produced by hosting, computer and server usage, and electricity are calculated, then 2X that amount is removed directly from the air…using tech created by AirMiners member companies!

Don’t miss this opportunity to join a dynamic and inspiring global network. Visit their website for program, speakers, and more information:

Direct Air Capture Of CO2 – Helping To Achieve Net-Zero Emissions

According to the 2018 report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, most future emission reduction pathways that enable to limit global average temperature increases to 1.5˚C require the deployment of some form of carbon dioxide removal. Direct air capture (DAC) is a process of capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) directly from the ambient air, as opposed to capturing from point sources, such as a cement factory or power plant, and generating a concentrated stream of CO2 for permanent underground storage, or for utilization in products.

The development of and the global attention on DAC has significantly increased over the past years, with both research speeding up and various commercial offerings now being available. This webinar will hear expert interventions on why direct air capture is so important, what types of solutions are available, as well as where some of the key R&D focus areas might be in the future.
