“Negative Emissions Technologies for a Carbon-Neutral World”
Despite global efforts to limit terrestrial warming to 1.5°C (or perhaps 2.0°C), there is increasing evidence that this goal will not likely be met. This places increased emphasis on the development of new technologies to actively capture CO2 emissions in an effort to remove them from the atmosphere. In this presentation, I will talk about research and development needs for specific technologies that are being pursued to convert CO2 to useful chemicals. This is just one part of what must be done, but it represents an interesting convergence of multiple science and engineering challenges and hopefully will be an interesting discussion for a Science Café!
