“Myno Carbon’s mission is to remove as much carbon as we can, as fast as we can to mitigate climate change. To meet this goal, Myno is building large-scale carbon removal facilities (CRFs) that convert sustainability sourced timber waste into biochar and renewable electricity. Once built, Myno’s first CRF in northeast Washington state will be the largest biochar production facility in the US. Myno is actively developing biochar sales pathways within our core biochar sales segments including agricultural inputs, potting media, horticulture, and animal feed, among others.”
“Carbon insurance is what we do. In fact, it’s all we do.
This single mindedness enables us to build an insurance company that offers tailored insurance products to all parties - buyers, sellers, intermediaries - across the carbon market. By keeping our brief laser-focused, we can offer insurance policies that are rooted in research, constantly re-calibrated as we acquire new data and based on the expertise that we and our partners pride ourselves on.”

“Peter Olivier is Head of New Markets at UNDO, a company that uses enhanced rock weathering to achieve carbon removal at scale. On this bonus episode of Reversing Climate Change, Peter joins Ross and Siobhan to describe the UNDO process, discussing the source of the rock UNDO uses, and why they partner with farmers to spread crushed rock on cropland. Peter shares his take on the forward contract basis of the CDR market, exploring ‘the uncomfortably large amounts of money’ we need to scale and how we might make CDR forwards contracts more fungible. Listen in for Peter’s insight on innovating CDR markets through donor-advised funds and find out how we might be able to influence the future by creating opportunities to finance carbon removal at scale!”
“The Canadian company Planetary is currently seeking regulatory approval to release Magnesium Hydroxide into the ocean off the coast of Cornwall, England. Another ocean CDR firm, Running Tide, announced last week that they are partnering with global consulting giant Deloitte to evaluate the quality of their carbon credits. Last month, a research team at MIT received news coverage for their ocean carbon capture technique which they say is a breakthrough that is more effective than direct air capture. These recent announcements indicate real and widespread interest in researching techniques that pull CO2 from the ocean. But how is research into these approaches governed? And what important regulatory issues have yet to be resolved, that will have a big impact on the climate? On this episode, we’ll take a look at the state of ocean CDR research governance with one of the field’s foremost experts, Wil Burns. Wil talks us through some the main international agreements that govern the seas, and experiments within them. What does existing law mean for plans to test ocean CDR?”
“Is it practical and sensible to turn deserts into forests, using desalination & irrigation? Upeksha Caldera discusses her new paper with @geoengineering1. Paper "Afforesting arid land with renewable electricity and desalination to mitigate climate change" (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41893-022-01056-7).”
“Without more corporate demand, the carbon removal market won’t scale to the level that is necessary for companies, and the world, to reach net zero in the coming decades.
On that path to achieve climate impact, corporate buyers of carbon removal are securing future capacity and mitigate risks by anticipating regulatory changes in the carbon market.
Additionally, businesses who act now boost their climate leadership and build up their knowledge to navigate a complex industry.
With the due diligence process that has been done by Shopify and others, early buyers today are in a good position to identify high-quality carbon removal solutions.”
How To Register and Certify Carbon Removal Credits | AirMiners
“Getting carbon credits recognized by registries is a key step in developing a carbon removal company. So for this panel, we are going to explore how an entrepreneur got certification for her carbon removal credits, and also add a buyer's perspective on what they look for in certifications.”
C2GTalk: How can companies ensure carbon dioxide removal has a positive impact? | C2G Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative
“New thinking is needed to ensure high-quality nature-based carbon dioxide removal offers genuine and long-lasting benefits to the climate and biodiversity, said Amy Luers, Global Director for Sustainability Science at Microsoft Corporation during a C2GTalk. Large-scale removal through CDR technologies lies further ahead, although most of the basic technologies already likely exist. While Ms. Luers is not in favor of pursuing solar radiation modification, “I am very much in favor of enhancing our understanding of the risks and opportunities it presents, the governance challenges, and how decisions are made around this.”
The Massive Machines Removing Carbon from Earth's Atmosphere | Jan Wurzbacher | TED
“To restrain global warming, we know we need to drastically reduce pollution. The very next step after that: using both natural and technological solutions to trap as much excess carbon dioxide from the air as possible. Enter Orca, the world's first large-scale direct air capture and storage plant, built in Iceland by the team at Climeworks, led by climate entrepreneur Jan Wurzbacher. This plant is capable of removing 4,000 tons of carbon dioxide from the air each year. With affordability and scalability in mind, Wurzbacher shares his vision for what comes after Orca, the future of carbon capture tech -- and why these innovations are crucial to stop climate change.”
Carbominer – New and Efficient CO₂ Direct Air Capture Technology | Carbominer
“Carbominer develops an efficient and sustainable technology to capture CO₂ locally from the ambient air. Direct Air Capture of CO₂ is a proven mean for the companies to reach net-zero goals by using a carbon removal mechanism or by transition to sustainable operations when switching to fossil-free CO₂ as a feedstock. Carbominer's main competitive advantages are the ability to set the affordable price per ton of CO₂ due to the transportability of the capturing modules, usage of electrochemistry for CO₂ regeneration and ability to harness the intermittent renewable energy. This short animation helps to understand how Carbominer combines a mix of dry and wet capture with electrochemistry-based pH-swing.”
Geoengineering Oceans to Slow Global Warming | Bloomberg Originals
“Oceans naturally absorb huge amounts of carbon dioxide, and efforts to harness that power are gaining in popularity. In Norway, we meet a group of scientists trying to change ocean alkalinity in order to supercharge its CO2 appetite, though the impact on ecosystems remains unknown. In Morocco, the company Brilliant Planet has opted instead to grow CO2-absorbing algae. But with previous experiments yielding mixed-results, can they deliver on their promises?”

Can we trick the ocean into swallowing more CO2? | DW Planet A
“Marine environments are effective at capturing carbon and storing it for thousands of years. But what if we could engineer them to capture even more? Can they take on this burden?”
