Institute for Carbon Removal Law and Policy – Direct Air Capture Facility Development in the United States

Please join the Environmental Policy & Culture Program at Northwestern University and the Institute for Carbon Removal Law and Policy for this webinar on direct air capture facility development in the United States.

As the United States explores the potential for large-scale carbon dioxide removal and utilization, some of the most important developments are taking place in America’s heartland. With funding from the U.S. Department of Energy the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (ISTC) is leading a team to develop the designs and feasibility assessment for the first commercial-scale direct air capture and storage system for carbon removal in the United States. This webinar features Kevin C. OBrien, Director of the ISTC and the project’s principal investigator. Dr. OBrien will discuss developments related to this project, as well as projects in Illinois that may help to advance the development of carbon removal and use.

Moderator: Wil Burns, Environmental Policy and Culture Program at Northwestern

Panelist: Kevin C. OBrien, Director, Illinois Sustainable Technology Center & Director, Illinois State Water Survey University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
