Brown Bag: Carbon Capture is more than just an idea…

There is such a thing as “Carbon Capture’ according to the latest news….

Removal means we grab CO2 pollution already out there and sock it away permanently. And according to Environmental Tech Expert Heather Clancy:

“…We are at a pivotal point in energy history. With the climate crisis accelerating, there’s an imperative to transition away from traditional, dirty energy sources as quickly as possible. The corporate procurement of 10 or 20 GW of solar or wind per year is insufficient when we need 50 or 100 GW added annually by the private sector to reach our climate goals.”

Some of the best news about the exciting changes that are occurring regarding the mitigation of greenhouse gases surrounds the many companies that are now venturing into businesses surrounding carbon capture.

Some Notable Examples are:

 

  • Climate Tech Fund just started and is a $100 Million dollar venture led by two women.
  • Another company, Wilk, is a startup aiming to help disrupt the dairy industry by producing in a lab a dairy and infant formula.
  • One Canadian company, Carbon Cure Technologies, has developed a way of injecting captured CO2 into concrete where it is mineralized and “permanently” stored. Carbon Cure’s corporate mission is to remove 500 million metric tons of CO2 annually by 2030, which in effect would be like taking 100 million cars off the road every year!
  • San-Francisco based Heirloom is another company using innovative technology to reduce carbon. They use renewable energy to accelerate a natural process that uses minerals “thirsty” for carbon dioxide and encourages them to soak up the CO2 like sponges, turning them into stone.

 

Working on carbon renewal and storage seems to be an ‘all hands on deck’ methodology that is needed in this time of transition.  We clearly see that we are at a tipping point for climate change. The field of technology as well as the financial world has now begun to rethink their corporate mentality. When the “bottom line’ for companies is seen to profit from doing the right thing, then we are going to on the right path in terms of carbon capture. For that reason, investing in carbon renewal offsets is what the Frontier Fund is focused on.

And finally, amid all the exciting news surrounding the companies committed to helping solve the climate crisis, there’s a company in Austin Texas called Terradepth which is using robots to collect information about the ocean floor!

The direction that we are moving in is the right one. The “All hands on deck’ approach is one that has been long-needed and seems to be finding some companies willing to dedicate their corporate structure and mentality towards finding solutions for a greener planet!
