I just got back from the CDR Basel 2023 conference in Switzerland where I heard a terrific panel on EU policy for carbon removal purchases.
What caught my attention is the latest with Europe's $750B+ carbon market, EU ETS. They might be adding carbon removal soon, which would be big! But like any customer they will have requirements... potentially even requiring that the carbon is stored within EU borders in order to qualify, eek!
I wonder about new business models opening up, or other business models having a hard time. Short term these are just rumors, but maybe this is something that you're already thinking about or planning for.
To learn more, I'm hosting an AirMiners Slack call to learn more from Sebastian Manhart, Senior Policy Advisor for Carbon Future. The first 20 minutes will be the two of us discussing, and then the last 10 minutes anyone listening in is welcome to join. So come on and join!
Come join the #carbon-markets channel on AirMiners Slack this Tuesday, 4/25 at 12:30 PM PST. Put it on your calendar.
P.S. AirMiners Town Hall #1 is on Monday! 171 AirMiners already registered. It's go time, sign up!
I'm on a mission to remove a billion tons of carbon dioxide by 2030. As part of that, I write a weekly newsletter of tangible actions to remove one billion tons of carbon dioxide by 2030.
The purpose of this newsletter is to accelerate carbon removal by speeding up connections, progress, and coordination. It's ideal for people working in carbon removal already or beginners who are excited to dive in and get my perspective. People curious about carbon removal are welcome to sign up and see what sticks.
