Growing the carbon dioxide removal market

Series: „Catalyst“ by Shayle Kann on canary media

In this episode, Shayle explores CDR with Ryan Orbuch, a partner at Lowercarbon Capital who leads the firm’s carbon-removal work. Ryan helped to start Stripe’s carbon-removal procurement program and has been involved in Stripe’s nearly $1 billion Frontier Fund.  Key questions around CDR including: What are the key characteristics of an effective carbon-removal technology? What roles do permanence and additionality play? Will investments in removal come at the expense of reducing emissions? Will CDR become a commodity market?
