Biotech and Carbon

February 02, 2019

Chemistry is at the heart of direct air capture technologies like Carbon Engineering, Climeworks, and Global Thermostat.

What about biology -- Does synthetic biology have a role to play in air mining?

I had a great conversation about biotech this week. Engineered biology has the potential to be orders of magnitude cheaper than chemical systems. And it's near and dear to my heart, having studied BioMedical Engineering at Brown, and co-founded BioCurious and OpenPCR.

Do you know someone obsessed with biotech and carbon removal? Would love to talk to them about our carbon products work.


I write a weekly newsletter highlighting the AirMiners community and carbon removal industry.

Every week you’ll get insider perspective and community stories from the cutting edge of carbon removal.

The purpose of this newsletter is to accelerate the carbontech industry by speeding up connections, progress, and coordination. It's ideal for people working in carbon removal already, or beginners who want one individual's perspective. People curious about carbon removal are encouraged to sign up and see what sticks.
