Helping industrial co2 abatement innovations to scale successfully

Helping industrial co2 abatement innovations to scale successfully


Alex is joined by Damian Beauchamp, President of 8 Rivers, and a leader in the deployment of innovations that decarbonize the toughest to abate sectors. With experience of major projects internationally, Damian talks about what it means to create conditions for success for innovative tech at-scale and how to approach innovation for hard to abate sectors in general. We also discuss what the new US administration could do to impact the decarbonisation agenda.

H2 beyond CO2 – assessing the environmental impact of hydrogen production

H2 beyond CO2 – assessing the environmental impact of hydrogen production

In this episode, Alex talks with Oshadee Siyaguna, Maxime Le Floch & Abby Frank from Regnan. An impact investor, they take seriously the need for investments in key aspects of the energy transition to be truly sustainable – we talk about their recent analysis on the environmental impact of hydrogen production and what industrials should be aware of when moving down this path. With hydrogen in the news and gaining a lot of interest, we look at whether its environmental impact affects its positioning as a clean tech. We examine Regnan’s recent analysis of hydrogen and what it means for those investing in this technology and sector in order to decarbonise.

This episode is for you if you’re interested in the role that innovation and systems/industry design could play in getting to net zero.

Mission Possible Partnership: Elevating the role of sectors in the global story of decarbonisation

Mission Possible Partnership: Elevating the role of sectors in the global story of decarbonisation

Mission Possible Partnership: Elevating the role of sectors in the global story of decarbonisation

Alex Cameron, Founder of Decarb Connect & Paul Bodnar, Managing Director, Rocky Mountain Institute

In this episode, Alex talks with Paul Bodnar, Managing Director of Climate Finance at Rocky Mountain Institute about the need to elevate sectors in the global discussion of decarbonisation. The Mission Possible Partnership seeks to build on what the Paris agreement did for nations and we talk about the set up, purpose and core supports that it can offer to industrial leaders globally.

Paul Bodnar brings extensive experience of climate finance and policy from his early career in investment through to his role in the Obama administration and his more recent leadership role at the Rocky Mountain Institute. Amongst the many projects he has led and influenced, Paul took a principal role in formulating the U.S. strategy for the Paris Climate Conference. He is also a senior associate (non-resident) at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and serves on the Board of the Carbon Tracker Initiative.

Hot on the heels of the Mission Possible Partnership’s launch at Davos, Alex and Paul talk about the MPP, the mechanisms that can be developed to link finance and investment to improving co2 per tonne of product – and about the how the nation-based approach developed in the Paris agreement can be augmented by platforms and policy that support the major emitters (which work across borders) in delivering net zero.

    Offshore CCS – enabling deep decarbonisation

    Offshore CCS – enabling deep decarbonisation

    Offshore CCS – enabling deep decarbonisation

    Alex Cameron, Founder of Decarb Connect & Nick Cooper, CEO, Storegga Geotechnologies

    The legacy of CCS is typically rooted in North American projects allied to EOR; in contrast the new wave of proposed European CCS projects are taking the technology in a new direction that is purely focussed on CO2 storage and where this storage will occur offshore. But to achieve net zero 2050, thousands of projects of this type may be needed. Join Nick Cooper, CEO of Storegga, too explore this emerging investment class and the value chain that is building up to deliver it.

    This is an ideal podcast for industrials wanting to understand whether they can leverage offshore CCS (whether in a cluster or not) – also for investors seeking to place capital in a way that delivers great returns along with decarbonisation.

    Circular economy as a route to delivering bigger climate gains & industrial opportunities

    Circular economy as a route to delivering bigger climate gains & industrial opportunities

    Eoin Bailey, Celsa Steel: Circular economy as a route to delivering bigger climate gains & industrial opportunities

    Decarbonisation is the topic of the moment for many hard to abate sectors – but is this missing the point of where real climate impact can be achieved? Alex talks with Eoin Bailey about the opportunities that circular economy could present and how the outcomes could present both climate and commercial wins for industry.

    Can the UK’s 10-Point Plan deliver net zero?

    Can the UK’s 10-Point Plan deliver net zero?

    Can the UK’s 10-Point Plan deliver net zero?

    Alex is joined by Nick Molho of the Aldersgate Group who represent UK corporates and advocate the business case for decarbonising the UK economy. At the time of recording, the UK Government’s 10 Point plan is still fresh in the minds of anyone pursuing decarbonisation. Nick reviews the plan for us and gives a clear assessment of the good, the bad and the absent. We talk about market mechanisms, getting value for tax payer investments and we look at trade policy as a lever for decarbonisation.

    Nick brings a background in environmental law to the discussion – plenty to learn from this (plus he’s a really engaging podcastee).
