Carbon dioxide removal (CDR) is an important category of technologies that can help reduce the risks of climate change, by offering pathways for managing emissions from difficult-to-decarbonize sectors and taking back legacy emissions. Developing and scaling these technologies will require important contributions from both the public and private sectors. This BPC event will explore these roles and opportunities.
Former Energy Secretary Moniz will outline the conclusions from the Energy Futures Initiative’s 12-month study on how to build an aggressive CDR research program. The subsequent panel of commercial leaders will discuss how the energy sector can contribute to scaling industrial CDR technologies, such as direct air capture, and will feature a new report on emerging technologies for managing carbon emissions from the Institute of Clean Air Companies and include several members of BPC’s Direct Air Capture Advisory Council.

President, Bipartisan Policy Center
Former Secretary, US Department of Energy
