Episode 33: Soaking up Carbon From the Atmosphere

Everybody in the Pool

Jan 31 2024 • 34 mins

This week on Everybody in the Pool, we’re exploring a topic that once seemed fanciful, unlikely at best, and even slightly controversial: carbon removal. Literally, taking carbon dioxide out of the air and storing it so it doesn’t keep warming the planet. In fact, in 2022, the UN released a report that essentially said developing carbon removal technology is not optional, in addition to cutting emissions, if we want to keep warming to manageable (ie, not catastrophic) levels. So this week, we’re talking with one of the most promising players in the space, Spiritus, whose CEO Charles Cadieu details the novel material they’ve invented that will eventually become orchards of carbon-absorbing “fruits.”
