In the past few years, carbontech has grown from a relative niche curiosity into a climate change mitigation imperative. To meet Paris Agreement goals, 6 gigatonnes of CO2 per year must be removed from the atmosphere as early as 2030. This emerging sector, which has received more than $1B in capital from private, philanthropic, and government sources, includes CO2 conversion into products, carbon dioxide removal from both natural and engineered systems, and permanent sequestration. The sector is becoming increasingly relevant to mature industries like electricity, oil and gas, agriculture, transportation, and manufacturing.
This event will explore the most important recent trends and advances in carbontech in four key areas: the role of entrepreneurs, private investors, corporates, and policymakers. XPRIZE’s Circular Carbon Network initiative is partnering with the Canadian Consulate in New York, Columbia University, CO2 Value Europe, Global CO2 Initiative, and Carbon180 to bring together this half-day event during Climate Week. Join us for a lively and informative discussion by a diverse and international lineup of speakers, and lightning talks by carbontech entrepreneurs. Reception to follow.
