Berkeley Lab 90th Speaker Series 043021.mp4

Berkeley Lab 90th Anniversary Speaker Series: Game Changing Solutions in the Fight Against Climate Change

Tackling the climate crisis and achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 are top priorities for the Biden Administration. How will the nation meet the ambitious plans the President has set forth? Key to the conversation is the deployment of negative emissions technologies (NETs), which remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere or other sources.

To meet this challenge, Berkeley Lab has launched the Carbon Negative Initiative, which will address the basic science required to scale these technologies, develop new life-cycle analyses for integrating NETs into future decarbonized energy and industrial systems, and identify the most promising directions for future NET research.
