Join us for Carbon Capture with Sally Benson


Carbon capture 1.0 failed to launch, will 2.0 be different? What about carbon removal? Utilization? Is carbontech anything more than a catch phrase?  

Join David, Sara, Ed, and special guest Sally Benson, professor of energy resources engineering at Stanford University Thursday, June 3 at 11 a.m. MT / 1 p.m. ET.  

Sally Benson directs the Stanford Center for Carbon Storage and the Stanford Carbon Removal Initiative. She brings technical knowledge and decades of experience to the topic. Sally and David first overlapped on CCS two decades ago and served on the IPCC’s 2005 Special Report on CCS. What did they get wrong? Right? What has been learned? And what does it mean for Canada?
