Event Description

Dr. Greeshma Gadikota joins This Is CDR to present Carbon To Stone’s novel approach to DAC via mineralization of alkaline waste materials.

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 discusses them in the context of CDR policies OpenAir seeks to formulate and advance at every level of government in the U.S., as well as in national and subnational jurisdictions globally.

This week we are very excited to welcome Carbon To Stone Founder Dr. Greeshma Gadikota of Cornell Engineering who will present the startup’s novel DAC approach that replaces conventional solvent regeneration using heat or pressure changes with direct mineralization of low-cost alkaline wastes such as steel slag, significantly reducing the energy, and thus the cost, required. The captured CO₂ is durably stored as solid carbonate materials that can be used for building materials and other industrial purposes.

About Greeshma:
