SPRIND Podcast mit Andreas Oschlies

sprind.org, 6.11.2023; 46 min

„Wie lässt sich massenhaft CO2 aus der Atmosphäre heraussaugen? Welche Rolle spielen die Weltmeere als langfristige CO2-Speicher? Und ist Geoengineering unser letzter Strohhalm? Unser Host Thomas Ramge spricht mit Prof. Dr. Andreas Oschlies vom GEOMAR Helmholtz-Zentrum für Ozeanforschung Kiel.“


Plan Sea: Ocean Interventions to Address Climate Change

podcast by Wil Burns & Anna Medlener (Institute for Carbon Removal Law & Policy, American University), 1h 18 min

This episode’s guests are Jean-Pierre Gattuso, CNRS research professor at Sorbonne University and Institute on Sustainable Development and International Relations, France, and Chair for Ocean Acidification and other ocean changes – Impacts and Solutions at Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation; and Andreas Oschlies, professor and head of the biogeochemical modeling research unit at GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research in Kiel, Germany.

Together they have led a crossdisciplinary, international research effort to produce a Best Practice Guide for Ocean Alkalinity Enhancement. The currently published pre-print of the guide consists of 13 chapters, written by 50+ scientific co-authors and covering all the relevant approaches available for ocean alkalinity enhancement (OAE) as a Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) approach. The chapters’ topics range from covering current knowledge of the individual approaches and scientific uncertainties as well as recommendations for responsible research and innovation, public engagement, data reporting and sharing, and monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV).


Plan Sea: Elektrochemical Ocean Alkalinity Enhancement and the European Marine CDR Community

podcast by Wil Burns & Anna Medlener (Institute for Carbon Removal Law & Policy, American University), 40 min

Rose Sharifian, CTO of the Dutch startup SeaO2, joins Plan Sea to talk about their electrochemical ocean carbon capture approach. Rose, Anna and Wil discuss SeaO2’s technical roadmap, electrochemical membrane technology as well as challenges and opportunities they are facing in the European CDR market. Rose also shares how SeaO2 fits into the global picture of marine CDR startups and why she believes they are amongst the furthest in their development.


Decarbonizing Steel and Cement

podcast by Jason Bordoff, Columbia Energy Exchange, 57 min

This week host Jason Bordoff talks with Chris Bataille about the prospects for decarbonizing the steel and cement industries. Chris is an adjunct research fellow at the Center on Global Energy Policy, where he studies technology and policy pathways to net zero, with a focus on industrial decarbonization. He is an associate researcher at the Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations and an adjunct professor at Simon Fraser University.


Reversing Climate Change: The Culture of Carbon Removal

podcast by Nori with Jason Grillo, Director of Partnerships and Operations at AirMiners, 56 min

Does culture eat strategy for breakfast? What does a successful carbon removal community look like? Who ordered the veal cutlet? Discover how culture takes center stage at AirMiners, one of the major communities empowering carbon removal startups.


Living Carbon’s Maddie Hall on bioengineering super trees to help fight climate change, synthetic bio’s potential, carbon credits

podcast by Sabrina Halper of HOF Capital, 46 min

Maddie Hall is the co-founder and CEO of Living Carbon, a plant bio-tech company growing genetically modified poplars and pines capable of absorbing much more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than regular trees. Previously, she worked on special projects at Y Combinator and OpenAI.


Reversing Climate Change: The state of blue carbon in carbon markets

podcast by Nori with Kevin Whilden of SeaTrees, 50 min

Reversing Climate Change presents an conversation with Kevin Whilden, the co-founder and co-director of Sustainable Surf, where they delve into the captivating world of ocean restoration, the power of storytelling, and the remarkable phenomenon of blue carbon. The speakers navigate the complexities of carbon offsetting, funding pathways for coastal and land-based restoration, and the profound impact of storytelling on driving environmental action. The spotlight of the discussion falls on blue carbon, which refers to the carbon stored within coastal and marine ecosystems.“


Synapsen: Climate Engineering – Unterstützung für die Klimawende

Lucie Kluth & Yasmin Appelhans, podcast, NDR.de, 09.06.2023 06:00 Uhr (1h)

„Yasmin Appelhans hat ein Forschungsprojekt auf Helgoland besucht, das die Folgen der Alkalisierung von Meerwasser untersucht: Mit Hilfe von Gesteinsmehl wird der pH-Wert des Wassers erhöht – das Meer kann mehr CO2 binden. Im Gespräch mit Host Lucie Kluth erklärt sie, was es mit Schläuchen und Schirmchen vor der Hochseeinsel auf sich hat, warum naturnahe Lösungen nicht immer die überlegenen sein müssen und wie groß der Anteil von Climate Engineering an der Klimawende sein könnte.“
