December's CDR Headlines w/ Ben Rubin


It's our last business episode of 2022. It's been a newsworthy year for startups, corporate commitments, and investing in carbon removal, and December has been no different.

This week we'll talk about a grab-bag of headlines:

  • Prince William came to the U.S. to give a promising carbon storage startup $1 million (among other things).
  • A major investor doubled down on their climate fund at a time when general VC funding is drying up.
  • An on-the-ground look at one DAC company's foray into bringing CDR to Wyoming's oil and gas country.

Ben Rubin joins Radhika and Susan as a guest business panelist. Ben is the Executive Director of the Carbon Business Council, a trade group for CDR companies.
