CALL is pleased to announce the relaunch of their popular Science and Environment Lecture Series, beginning in January. We will be using the Zoom Webinar format which allows for larger numbers of attendees and a more orderly presentation format. A Q&A feature in the Webinar platform allows for the audience to ask questions of the speaker at the end of the presentation. The sessions will be held at 7:30 PM on the first Tuesday of the month, as was the custom pre-Covid.
CAPTURING CARBON FOR PLANET AND PROFIT
CO2 and other greenhouse gases (GHG) represent an existential threat to our planet. We must reduce our production of the gases that are disrupting climate and our ecosystems. GHG’s already produced will remain in our atmosphere for hundreds of years and continue to degrade our environment, unless we are able to remove them.
Carbon Upcycling Technologies (“CUT”) was formed to use the pollution of today to build the materials of tomorrow by converting CO2 gas into solid products. CUT sells advanced solid products derived from greenhouse emissions and cheaply available solids. Since 2014, CUT has scaled its ability to capture CO2 emissions from point sources, such as power plants, by over a million times. CUT has used the extracted CO2 to make plastics, coatings, epoxy, adhesives, concrete, lithium-ion battery, pharmaceutical industries, and consumer products.
CUT has received many awards for their work and are continuing the development of other new technologies. Join us to learn more about the technology and business behind this exciting Calgary-based carbon utilization company!
