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 this weekly newsletter highlighting my journey, sharing everything you should know about opportunities in the new carbon economy.

Every week you’ll get insider information on what’s possible in the cutting edge of negative emissions through my personal journey in air mining and share lessons learned.
