    Building a decarbonization army with Shashank Samala of Heirloom

    Building a decarbonization army with Shashank Samala of Heirloom

    Cutting emissions alone will not be enough. To avoid the worst effects of global climate change, Heirloom CEO and co-founder Shashank Samala believes we’ll also need to pull a lot of carbon out of the atmosphere...

    This week on How I Built This Lab, Shashank’s leap into climate entrepreneurship, launching the company that, in just four years, built North America’s first operational carbon capture facility. Plus, Heirloom’s novel approach to carbon removal—one tray of limestone at a time.

    Europas energieintensive Industrie: Zukunftsfähig oder abgeschlagen?

    Europas energieintensive Industrie: Zukunftsfähig oder abgeschlagen?
    Die Industrie ist eine wichtige Säule der europäischen Wirtschaft, doch hohe Energiepreise und die steigenden Kosten für die grüne Transformation stellen insbesondere energieintensive Unternehmen vor immer größere Herausforderungen. Im Gespräch mit Thu Nguyen spricht unser Experte für Klima- und Energiepolitik Philipp Jäger über genau diese Herausforderungen. Er erklärt dabei, was die energieintensive Industrie ausmacht, wie wichtig sie für Deutschland und andere EU-Mitgliedstaaten wie Frankreich sind, und welche Handlungsoptionen es seitens der EU für einen Weg nach vorne gibt. Welche industriepolitischen Maßnahmen man auf europäischer Ebene einführen könnte, wie hoch das Risiko einer Deindustrialisierung ist, und wie man steigende Preise trotz grüner Transformation vermeiden könnte, all das erfahrt ihr in dieser Folge „EU to go“.

    From fuels to chemistry: how can we use captured CO2? | Catherine laroche and Jean-Philippe Héraud (IFPEN)

    From fuels to chemistry: how can we use captured CO2? | Catherine laroche and Jean-Philippe Héraud (IFPEN)

    What should be done with the CO2 captured in industrial emissions? We’ve seen that it's possible to isolate it from the atmosphere by storing it underground. Now we also need to consider it as a resource in the context of “CCU”: CO2 Capture and Utilization. In France today, 0.8 Mt of CO2 is used per year, with the food processing industry behind 70% of that. From chemical products to construction materials, there are many ways to use CO2. There is particular potential in synthetic fuels, an area that is still being studied. Catherine Laroche, CCU R&D Project Manager, and Jean Philippe Héraud, Advanced Biofuels Project Manager, both with IFPEN, explain all of this in detail in our 5th episode. 

    #31: Wie erreichen wir die Klimaziele für den Verkehr schneller?

    #31: Wie erreichen wir die Klimaziele für den Verkehr schneller?
    Das Erreichen der Pariser Klimaziele im Verkehrssektor ist nicht ausschließlich mit E-Autos machbar, weil der Fahrzeugbestand nicht schnell genug ausgetauscht werden kann – es sei denn mit harten Beschränkungen für Autos mit Verbrennungsmotoren bis hin zur Stilllegung. Ihr Weiterbetrieb mit E-Fuels wäre eine klimaneutrale Lösung. „Alles gar nicht nötig“, sagt Professor Franz Josef Radermacher. In dieser Folge zeigt er weit effizientere Möglichkeiten auf, den Klimawandel zu bekämpfen. Es geht u.a. um Carbon Capture.

    CO2 capture from the industry sector: towards greater efficiency | Vania Santos Moreau and Stéphane Bertholin (IFPEN)

    After talking about storing CO2, now it’s time to talk about capturing it! This is a major challenge as between 5 to 7 billion tonnes of CO2 will have to be captured every year in 2050 if we want to achieve carbon neutrality. What is the state of the different capture technologies today? An overview of projects demonstrating more effective and cheaper CO2 capture technologies with our two 4th-episode guests, Vania Santos-Moreau, 3D project manager, and Stéphane Bertholin, Cheers project manager.

    CO2 transport and storage: having the resources to match decarbonization objectives | Audrey Estublier and Kateryna Voronetska (IFPEN)

    According to IEA, it would be necessary to store more than 5 billion tons of CO2 per year in 2050 in order to achieve carbon neutrality. Do we have the storage capacities to match our ambitions? Europe already has the required capacities, as Audrey Estublier, CO2 storage project manager, and Kateryna Voronetska, Compression, Transport, Wells project manager, both experts in the field at IFPEN, recount in this 3rd episode. The task now is to prepare the storage sites and ensure their safety for the coming centuries.

    CCUS deployment : an issue of costs and infrastructures planning | Paula Coussy (IFPEN)

    For this 2nd episode, let’s question more precisely CCUS and ecological transition with Paula Coussy, CO2 Externalities Project Manager at IFPEN: from capturing the CO2 to storing it, how to deploy the CCUS on a large scale? Not only the costs are a decisive issue for the industry but also the storage and transport networks that have to be planned and coordinated.

    HIBT Lab! Climeworks: Jan Wurzbacher

    HIBT Lab! Climeworks: Jan Wurzbacher

    According to the 2022 report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the world needs to cut carbon emissions drastically to avoid the worst effects of global warming. But that’s not all. In addition to reducing emissions, we also need to remove 6 to 10 billion tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere each year by 2050. 

    This week on How I Built This Lab, Guy talks with Jan Wurzbacher, co-founder and CEO of Climeworks. They discuss how Jan and his team built the world’s largest direct air capture facility, which filters carbon dioxide from the air and stores it permanently underground. Plus, Jan’s optimistic vision of how humans can achieve the goal of reversing climate change.

    CO2-Staubsauger? "Dürfen uns nicht zu früh einreden, dass es funktioniert"

    CO2-Staubsauger? "Dürfen uns nicht zu früh einreden, dass es funktioniert"

    In etwas mehr als 20 Jahren will die EU klimaneutral sein. Das aber klappt nur, wenn wir CO2 großflächig aus der Atmosphäre herausziehen, sagt Oliver Geden von der Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik (SWP). Denn egal, wie wenig Treibhausgase wir ausstoßen, Landwirtschaft, Luftverkehr oder Industrie werden nie neutral sein. Im "Klima-Labor" von ntv berichtet der Leitautor des sechsten Sachstandsberichts des Weltklimarates von mehreren Methoden, mit denen das möglich ist: ökosystembasierte wie Aufforstung mit begrenztem Potenzial; ozeanbasierte mit noch unklaren Nebenwirkungen; technologische, die noch sehr teuer sind. Schöpfen wir alle Möglichkeiten vollständig aus, erleichtern wir uns den Kampf gegen Klimawandel erheblich, sagt Oliver Geden. Dennoch empfiehlt er, den Einsatz politisch zu begrenzen.

    (15) CO2 aus der Luft holen, oder: was Klimasenken bringen

    (15) CO2 aus der Luft holen, oder: was Klimasenken bringen
    Alle sind sich einig, auch wenn wir unseren Ausstoss an Treibhausgasen sofort auf null bringen, es wird nicht reichen, um das 1,5 Grad Ziel zu erreichen. Deshalb müssen wir CO2 aus der Luft filtern. Die Frage ist nur wie – mit Aufforstung, mit dem maschinellen Filtern von CO2 aus der Luft? Keine einfache Frage, und auch unsere Experten, der Klimawissenschaftler Reto Knutti und Christoph Beuttler, Projektleiter bei climeworks, stimmen da nicht in allen Punkten überein.

    Klaus Lackner on Carbon Capture, Climate Change, and Physics – #40

    Klaus Lackner on Carbon Capture, Climate Change, and Physics – #40

    Steve and Corey talk to Klaus Lackner, director of the Center for Negative Carbon Emissions (CNCE) at Arizona State University and the first person to suggest removing CO2 from air to address climate change. Steve asks whether Klaus’ research was motivated by a tail risk of catastrophic outcomes due to CO2 build up. Klaus explains that he sees atmospheric CO2 as a waste management problem. Calculations show that removing human-produced carbon is energetically and economically viable. Klaus describes his invention, a “mechanical tree”, that passively collects CO2 from the air, allowing it to be stored or converted to fuel.
