Wednesday 11 October, 2023 

The race to mitigate the effects of the energy crisis and climate change has seen one sector emerging: direct air capture. The technology is the only truly scalable solution to removing CO2 from the atmosphere, and is vital for both addressing unavoidable emissions, as well as cleaning up what has already been emitted.

Andreas will share his unique views and insights on: 
*The importance and economics of carbon removals
*Opportunities and challenges of the technology
*The journey from startup to unicorn scale-up
