S3 #1 | Getting serious about scale

S3 #1 | Getting serious about scale

We are back! Did you miss us?

Kicking off Season 3, Tom and Emily are exploring what it will take to grow the carbon removal industry to the scale we need. They speak to various actors in the carbon removal space, from project developers and policy experts to marketplaces and buyers. Their curiosity for the scaling problem took the team on a trip to Basel, Switzerland for a CDR conference hosted by Carbonfuture: Carbon Removal Basel.

The team uses this episode to highlight some key themes around trust and scaling up that will be explored throughout the season.
