Restoring the Carbon Balance- Session 3: Policies and Financing

by Arturo Herrera on March 22, 2017

The webinar series, Restoring the Carbon Balance, SSF is producing with LightWorks at Arizona State University, is about taking research steps now to have technologies commercially available in the next decade or so, which can cost-effectively extract residual carbon from the air. According to the International Panel on Climate Change, that is what it will take to avoid the worst climate disruptions.

In webinar 1 of the series we addressed the imperative to hold CO2 levels to below 450 PPM to mitigate the risk of severe climate impacts. Webinar 2 reviewed carbon removal, storage and utilization technologies and their status of development. Click the slides to watch the recordings.

Webinar 3 examined policies, political approaches and funding options that can facilitate investment in RD&D needed to accelerate the pace of commercialization of carbon removal, storage and utilization technologies.
