Job: Electrical Control & Instrumentation Engineer (Mission Zero Technologies)

No Deadline

"MZT is an early-stage start-up that is pioneering a breakthrough carbon capture technology that can scrub CO2 from the air using a fraction of the energy compared to incumbent technologies developed by the likes of Carbon Engineering and Climeworks. [...] MZT is hiring an E, C&I engineer to work with both the CTO & CPO to develop MZT’s product lines and laboratory capability. You will lead the development of our electrical process control & monitoring philosophies, a capability key for optimising system performance, by supporting the integration of the direct air capture technology’s key unit operations, initially at a demonstrator scale. This will involve working closely with our process engineering team to develop the control and monitoring systems of the process hardware, enabling safe operation, real-time data acquisition and process optimisation. As one of the first technical employees, you will have a significant role in helping to develop R&D facilities and protocols. Our vision for our first employees is that they own the business with us (literally), grow it with us and become part of the collective story of Mission Zero, taking a catalytic role in its early history and the fight against climate change."

Call for Abstracts: 2nd International Conference on Negative CO2 Emissions

Deadline: 1. December 2021

"The objective of the Paris Agreement is to limit global warming to well below 2ºC, and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5ºC. The carbon budget is the amount of carbon dioxide that we can emit while still limiting global temperature rise to a given level, for example 1.5ºC.The exact size of the carbon budget is uncertain and depends on many factors, including potential future warming of non-CO2 climate forcers. This said, the remaining budgets for limiting the warming to 1.5ºC or 2ºC have been estimated at about 420 and 1170 Gt of CO2 . With unchanged present emissions at about 40 Gt CO2/year these budgets would be exhausted in as few as 10 and 30 years, respectively. Most of the IPCC emission scenarios that meet a global two-degree target in 2100 overshoot the carbon budget at first and then remove the excess carbon with large negative emissions, typically on the order of 400‑800 Gt CO2 up to 2100.At the same time as negative emissions appear to be indispensable to meet adopted climate targets, the large future negative emissions assumed in climate models have been questioned and warnings have been raised about relying on very large and uncertain negative emissions in the future. With the future climate at stake, a deeper and fuller understanding of the various aspects of negative emissions is needed."

Call for Participation: IGES–FAO survey on estimation of carbon stock changes in mineral soils in national greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories

"Soils constitute the biggest carbon pool in terrestrial ecosystems and can have a significant contribution to climate change mitigation through carbon sequestration. However, the estimation and reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and removals, especially from mineral soils, is very limited. Currently, countries face significant challenges in reporting carbon stock changes and associated CO2 emissions from mineral soils even when using the basic methodological level (tier 1). This is true for a wide range of countries, both developed and developing. Thus, it is worthwhile to understand the reasons behind the incomplete reporting by countries in order to have more targeted actions towards filling the gaps. For this reason, FAO and IGES are launching the survey on “Estimation of carbon stock changes in mineral soils in national greenhouse gas inventories. The survey focuses on understanding the existing technical capacity and the main challenges in estimating carbon stock changes (CSCs) and associated CO2 emissions/removals in mineral soils due to land use/management and their changes on managed land. In addition, the survey explores whether soil scientist/experts are collaborating in this process, as well as their awareness of the topic, data needs and methodologies. The survey refers to technical experts working on estimating CSCs in mineral soils due to land use, management/changes and CO2 emissions/removals from the carbon pool; and to soil scientist/experts working on producing data and knowledge on this topic. The survey requires 5 minutes and it will be available from 21 September to 8 October 2021."

Job: Coda Terminal Program Manager (Carbfix)

Deadline: 30. September 2021

"Carbfix is looking for new big-minded team members to play a key role in substantially reducing global CO2 emissions. [...] Carbfix has developed a natural and economic technology that turns CO2 permanently into stone underground in less than two years. [...]This is a unique opportunity for ambitous and driven individuals who think big and are passionate about solving the climate crisis. The Coda Terminal is a cross-border carbon transport and storage hub in Iceland. CO2 will be captured at industrial sites in North Europe and shipped to the Terminal for permanent mineral storage with the Carbfix technology. Transport and storage capacity will amount to three million tons of CO2 per year when full capacity will be reached. Role and responsibilites: program Structure e.g. with respect to permitting processes, preparation and design, construction, customer relationships and financing; integrated scheduling and resource reconciliation; governance and stakeholder management, public relations and marketing; ensure benefit realisation."

Job: Project Manager (Carbfix)

Deadline: 30. September 2021

"Carbfix is looking for new big-minded team members to play a key role in substantially reducing global CO2 emissions. Climate goals will not be met without widespread application of CO2 capture and storage (CCS). Carbfix has developed a natural and economic technology that turns CO2 permanently into stone underground in less than two years. Mineral transformation transforms the cost structures, risks and liabilities associated with CO2 storage. This is a unique opportunity for ambitous and driven individuals who think big and are passionate about solving the climate crisis. [...] Role and responsibilites: Lead CCS projects and initiatives from the preparation stage, through design and implementation; cost estimates and contracting; stakeholder management and communication; permitting and licencing; ensuring and managing resources."
