Chris Jospe, Chief Strategist for the Center for Negative Carbon Emissions at Arizona State University
Please join CUCSD for a presentation advances in air capture technology. Mitigating the most severe effects of climate change requires that atmospheric concentrations of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) do not rise beyond unsafe limits. Decades of inaction on emissions reductions, failure to adequately price carbon or construct energy systems that decouples carbon emissions growth from economic growth, the world is exceeding the “safe” threshold of 450 parts per million (ppm) as outlined by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Christophe Jospe, former Seeple and chief strategist for the Center for Negative Carbon Emissions, a new center at Arizona State University lead by former Columbia University professor Klaus Lackner, will discuss an overview of air capture technology, contextualize air capture within the carbon capture, utilization and storage industry, and provide into insight into the air capture deployment pathways at the Center for Negative Carbon Emissions.
