Getting to NetZero: CO2 Removal, Use and Sequestration.
Reducing global greenhouse gas emissions to zero by mid-century will require all the renewable and nuclear generation, grid-integrated energy storage, and electrification humanity can attain over the next 30 years. But the global consensus from organizations like the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine is that these technologies alone cannot get us to net zero. We’ll also need technologies for removing carbon dioxide (CO2) from industrial emissions and from the atmosphere, converting it to long-lived products where we can, and putting the rest into the deep subsurface for safe permanent storage. Come learn about CO2 mitigation technologies, and how they might deploy at scale—globally and in the Pacific Northwest.
|About the Speaker|
Casie Davidson is a senior scientist focused on evaluating and deploying net-negative emissions technologies facilitated by geologic CO2 storage and mineralization. Prior to joining PNNL, she enjoyed various character-building experiences, including cross-disciplinary graduate research in petroleum engineering and economics at the University of Alaska Fairbanks; and an appointment as a Department of Energy Fellow—and amateur tick inspector—at the Rocky Mountain Oilfield Testing Center in Casper, Wyoming.
