Direct Air Capture Facility Development in the United States

As the United States explores the potential for large-scale carbon dioxide removal and utilization, some of the most important developments are taking place in America’s heartland. With funding from the U.S. Department of Energy, the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (ISTC) is leading a team to develop the designs and feasibility assessment for the first commercial-scale direct air capture and storage system for carbon removal in the United States. This webinar featured Kevin C OBrien, Director of the ISTC and the project’s principal investigator. Dr. OBrien discussed developments related to this project, as well as projects in Illinois that may help to advance the development of carbon removal and use.

Panelist: Kevin C OBrien, Director, Illinois Sustainable Technology Center & Director, Illinois State Water Survey University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
