Balancing Greenhouse Gas Emitters and Converters

Session Description

Who are the brilliant minds identifying solutions to the climate crisis through the removal of carbon from the atmosphere? What companies have the breakthrough technologies to capture CO2?
Do offsets really work? How can we best identify and apply solutions to the climate challenges ahead?

Session Agenda

12:05 pm

How much CO2 do we need to remove over the next decades? How can we integrate removals
into our economy and create carbon-negative products and value chains?

Petrissa Eckle, Executive Director of the Sustainability in Business Lab,
ETH Zurich, Switzerland.

12:25 pm

Cement production worldwide releases nearly four times as much carbon dioxide into the air as
global air traffic. This session introduces next-generation technology for the mineralisation of carbon
dioxide, turning broken concrete into stone granulate as a replacement for sand and gravel in
fresh concrete.

Valentin Gutknecht, CoF0under and CEO, Neustark, Switzerland

12:45 pm

A multitude of challenges face the cutting-edge companies deploying ‘miracle’ technologies to
capture carbon. Vital questions abound: How effective is it to deploy these technologies at the
mammoth scale our overheating planet requires? How will the carbon be stored? And how to avoid
pumping even more CO2 from carbon capture machines into the atmosphere?

Nathalie Casas, Head of Technology, Climeworks, Switzerland

1:05 pm

Why it’s hard to abate energy-hungry industries that rely on fossil fuels today. Which alternatives
have a promising outlook? Can batteries compete with hydrogen, methanol or, ammonia?
What opportunities exist for collaboration to speed the transition?

Carsten Reincke-Collon, Director Future Technologies, Aggreko, Germany

1:25 pm

Biochar is one of the most promising negative emission technologies but how a new innovation play
an outsize role in removing carbon from the air, sequestering it for thousands of years and
providing a source of heat and greener urban infrastructure – all at a competitive price per ton of
carbon removed.

Henrietta Moon, Co-Founder & CEO, Carbo Culture, Finland
