In Episode 74, Quinn & Brian discuss: Making carbon capture suck more (but this time, with carrots).
Our guest is Henry Elkus, the young and optimistic founder of Helena, an organization that assembles “some of the world’s most remarkable people to develop and lead projects that help build a better tomorrow.” They’re a little different from other think thanks, though, because they focus on one problem at a time, creating projects that aim to operationally address a societal problem.
The first project Helena focused on was a carbon capture solution – one of the most positive and lucrative possible solutions for addressing the excess carbon in our atmosphere, which has to be done if we want to slow down and possibly reverse climate catastrophe. They helped build and scale the world’s first commercial carbon capture company, Climeworks, creators of the first carbon capture plant that is carbon net-negative.
