Podcast: Nori: How many jobs will a direct air capture industry create?—w/ John Larsen of Rhodium Group

"Direct air capture or DAC is one of the many strategies we need to employ to achieve the goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. So, how do we scale up the DAC industry to capture the hundreds of millions of tons of CO2 we need to remove from the atmosphere? And what would that kind of growth mean in terms of business opportunities and job creation?"

Shi, Xiaoyang; et al. (2020): Moisture-Driven CO2 Sorbents

Shi, Xiaoyang; Xiao, Hang; Kanamori, Kohei; Yonezu, Akio; Lackner, Klaus S.; Chen, Xi (2020): Moisture-Driven CO2 Sorbents. In Joule 4 (8), pp. 1823–1837. DOI: 10.1016/j.joule.2020.07.005.

"An energy-saving system containing ion-exchange or nanoporous materials and carbonate ions is proposed, which is capable of capturing CO 2 from ambient air simply by controlling the amount of water (moisture) in contact with the sorbent."
