Direct Air Capture Innovations: The Future of Climate Action
About The Webinar
Join us for the second episode of the Patch Project Showcase, a monthly webinar series highlighting innovative frontier Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) technologies. In this episode, we'll be featuring two companies that are developing cutting-edge Direct Air Capture (DAC) technologies: AspiraDAC and CarbonCapture Inc.
Julian Turecek, Managing Director at AspiraDAC will speak about their DAC technology that captures CO2 from the air using a novel process based on adsorption, and Patricia Loria, VP, Business Development at CarbonCapture Inc. will talk about how their DAC systems capture CO2 from the air using temperature vacuum swing adsorption with solid sorbents and are being designed for massive scalability and rapid upgrades. Together they will discuss how these innovative technologies are addressing one of the biggest challenges of our time.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- The potential of DAC as a technology to contribute to the gigaton-scale volume of carbon removal required by mid-century (IPCC).
- The main challenges these companies face in scaling up their technologies, particularly around access to finance, lack of subsidies, energy usage, elevated price point, and the potentially limiting size of the VCM.
