Global Citizenship in Carbon Capture, Use, and Storage (CCUS) and New Carbon Economy


In a world grappling with the challenges of climate change, our webinar seeks to shed light on innovative solutions driving the transition to a more sustainable future. Specifically, we will focus on the critical role of Carbon Capture, Use, and Storage (CCUS) in mitigating climate change impacts and shaping a new carbon economy.

This webinar is the fifth in our six-part series on fostering youth-led innovation for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It is co-developed by the Center for Sustainable Development at Columbia University and the Entrepreneurship at Environment team from the University of Waterloo, and will be led by Professor Wen-wen Tung at Purdue University.

We have convened an expert panel consisting of Douglas Schmitt, Greg Dipple, Matt Mettler, and Amanda Ellis. Dr. Yunyue Elita Li will moderate a discussion that helps participants envision a future where technological innovation harmonizes with sustainability. The panel will touch on unique challenges and opportunities emerging as part of the new carbon economy, addressing key themes such as scientific analysis and open data on CCUS, transformative impacts of CCUS and CDR (Carbon Dioxide Removal), and envisioning a low-carbon future.

As a participant, you will deepen your understanding of the following:

Context: Explore the deployment of CCUS technologies gaining traction in North America and Europe, catalyzed by favorable policies.

Insights: Gain in-depth insights into CCUS and CDR technologies, with expert panelists unraveling the scientific intricacies and engineering designs underpinning these transformative projects.

Real-world Perspectives: Industry forerunners will share challenges and successes in scaling up CCUS and CDR endeavors, offering a practical perspective on a low-carbon future.
