Machines based on chemical processes that can be used to remove CO2 directly from the atmosphere are nearing the pilot demonstration stage at a number of locations in North America and Europe.

Already some have moved from the university laboratory toward being developed in entrepreneurial commercial start-up companies. Each offers opportunities for negative emissions and commercial utilisation of captured CO2.

However, although general descriptions of these technologies are available in the public domain, detailed developments are moving fast and new potential opportunities are emerging rapidly.

This seminar will focus on the latest developments and opportunities for air capture globally and discuss prototype test results, possible routes to scale-up and manufacture, potential for commercial CO2 utilization, current technical and funding issues, identified research gaps and competing technologies and processes.

Keynote: Graciela Chichilnisky & Peter Eisenberger, Co-founders and Managing Directors, Global Thermostat LLC
