    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.

    Scaling Up Carbon Removal: A Deep Dive with Ben Rubin of the Carbon Business Council

    Scaling Up Carbon Removal: A Deep Dive with Ben Rubin of the Carbon Business Council

    Ready to debunk some myths about carbon removal and scale up your knowledge to a gigaton level? Strap in for a transformative conversation with Ben Rubin, the visionary Executive Director of the Carbon Business Council

    With a mission as ambitious as the climate change challenge we face, Ben is here to guide us through the intricate world of carbon removal and management. He regales us with tales of the birth of the Carbon Business Council and elaborates on how collaboration is the key to making a large-scale climate impact. We also tackle the often misunderstood concept of carbon removal, demonstrating the scale and scope of the challenge we face, while highlighting the importance of communicating science effectively to ensure progress.

    As we navigate the complexities of our carbon-clad world, we delve into the role of the public and private sectors in scaling up carbon removal. We spotlight recent examples of corporate purchases and investments, painting a clear picture of the relationship between understanding and action in carbon management. Plus, we dissect the concept of twin targets for net zero pledges. With the Carbon Business Council's global reach and bipartisan support in the U.S., we explore their strategies for engaging with climate change skeptics and harmonizing efforts to scale up carbon removal.

    It's a powerful conversation that emphasizes the importance of communication in addressing climate change, and how we can all contribute to a more sustainable future.

    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.
