Travertine: CDR x Critical Element Extraction: free webinar, September 13

A useful learning and networking opportunity for anyone interested in CDR: the Travertine: CDR x Critical Element Extraction free webinar on September 13.

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 Travertine CEO Dr. Laura Lammers to present the company’s innovative electrochemical process that enhances the Earth’s natural carbon cycle to precipitate carbonate minerals from carbon dioxide in the air, permanently storing carbon in the solid phase — while also recycling sulfates from mine tailings and generating green Hydrogen!

About Laura:

Dr. Laura Lammers is Founder and CEO of Travertine. Prior to Travertine, Laura was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management at UC Berkeley and a Faculty Scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley Lab specializing in environmental geochemistry. Her group studied the natural chemical processes that regulate the cycling of critical elements in the environment, regulated by mineral-aqueous interfacial reactions. The Lammers Lab sought to develop a mechanistic understanding of carbonate and phosphate mineralization and selective element separation to inspire and improve approaches for carbon sequestration, environmental remediation, and critical resource recovery. Laura was the recipient of a Department of Energy Early Career Award (2020), a LBNL Women@the Lab Award (2020), as well as the Mineralogical Society of America Award (2018). She earned her PhD from the University of California-Berkeley Department of Earth and Planetary Science, Center for Isotope Geochemistry, and a BA in Earth Sciences Summa Cum Laude from Dartmouth College.
