A useful learning and networking opportunity for anyone interested in CDR: the Carbyon: “Fast-Swing” DAC free webinar on August 9.
OpenAir is excited to present This Is CDR, an online event series that explores the wide range of carbon dioxide removal (CDR) solutions currently being researched, developed, and deployed, and contextualize them for policy proposals OpenAir seeks to advance in New York, and other states, localities, and jurisdictions worldwide.
This week on This Is CDR, we are pleased to welcome Carbyon Founder and CEO Hans de Neve to present the company’s novel, X-Prize Milestone Award winning “fast-swing” DAC process that employs a continuously rotating drum that consists of activated carbon fibers functionalized with amines.
Hans de Neve founded Carbyon in 2019 as a spin-off company from the Dutch research institute TNO. At TNO he was working on novel materials and production technologies for solar panels. He is trained as an electronic engineer and material scientist. His PhD is on III-V semiconductor materials. He worked for many years at Alcatel-Lucent before engaging in the domain of renewable energy about 10 years ago.
