University of Air Miners

December 17, 2018


What's this? A prototype to suck up carbon dioxide from your home’s fireplace.

It's built by a team of undergraduate engineers at the University of Maryland as part of the “Design for Sustainability” course. With Matthew as their guide, the team of 3 explored the lean startup process over 8 weeks. They researched carbon market opportunities, learned about ecosystem services, and prototyped new ideas.

Great working with you, Reed, Tim, David, Professor Arul, and “Professor Eshed”.

Now we're looking for our next student group for the spring semester 2019...

Do you know a professor interested in air mining for a student project?


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.

To read it first, check out the archive of 100+ updates. My newsletter is the best way to follow what I'm up to.
