How to shorten the time from demonstration to commercialisation of new industrial decarbonisation tech

How to shorten the time from demonstration to commercialisation of new industrial decarbonisation tech

How to shorten the time from demonstration to commercialisation of new industrial decarbonisation tech
Alex Cameron, Founder of Decarb Connect talks with Dr Gbemi Oluleye, Research Associate – Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College.

The climate challenge (and current netzero commitments) mean that industry needs solutions that can go from innovation to commercial scale much more rapidly than usual. We need technologies and business models to scale quickly – so what types of simultaneous innovations are required of policy, business models and technology to ensure that we decarbonise industry in time for Net Zero 2040/2050?

Industry, policy, technology challengers and consumers – all of us play a role in accelerating the time it will take for decarbonisation innovation to get to commercial scale. Alex talks with Dr Gbemi Oluleye to explore how the wider system could come together to influence scalability of tech.

This episode is for you if you’re considering investment in an early stage tech, if you’re involved in policy or if you’re an industrial wondering how you’ll meet critical co2 commitments. If you’re new to the fiield of industrial decarbonisation, our discussion about the challenges for scaling technologies that work quickly enough is a great starting point for immersing yourself in the subject. The conversation also examines emerging opportunities including Decarbonisation As Service and Decarbonisation System Orchestration.

Transforming cement – whats the route from 8% of global co2 emissions to carbon neutrality?

Transforming cement – whats the route from 8% of global co2 emissions to carbon neutrality?

Churning out 7-8% of global co2 emissions puts cement companies in the sights of climate activists, investors and anyone looking for an easy headline. Ian Riley, CEO of the WCA, talks with Alex about the cement sector and the active decarbonisation projects that are already underway.

With the industry owning a serious emissions number, there are no shortage of detractors – but it is also a sector that is pursuing a wide range of product & operational decarbonisation projects. Energy efficiency, potential alternative fuels, cementitious additives and next gen technologies like CCUS are all up for discussion. Find out about some of the hottest projects – but also the reality of the policy impediments and opportunities that need resolving.

Carbon Pricing, Technology Readiness and the Value of Patent/IP analysis

Carbon Pricing, Technology Readiness and the Value of Patent/IP analysis

If you like data, strong views and a clear perspective on what will make decarbonisation viable, this session is for you. Alex talks with Rob West about Thunder Said Energy’s recent analysis of millions of patents and lines of data around the core technologies linked to net zero.

Renewables, industrial efficiency, CCUS & hydrogen are all up for discussion – as is the analysis that points to nature-based solutions being the a key route to deliver ing net zero. Whatever your interest in decarbonisation, settle in for different perspective and (sometimes) controversial insights.

We talk carbon pricing, technology readiness and the value of patent/IP analysis in determining the right rout forward.

Design, Deploy, Learn, Adapt: what are we learning from early projects and where next?

Design, Deploy, Learn, Adapt: what are we learning from early projects and where next?

Alex speaks with Aniruddha Sharma, CEO of Carbon Clean Solutions about what they’ve learned from the demonstrations and pilots that they are leading with industrial clients.

With $22m in funding recently secured, CCSL’s low-cost approach to carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and separation technology is getting backing and support from big names. Find out what is being learned from early projects, and also how industrials benefit from a more incremental approach to CO2 reduction.

Leading industrial decarbonisation in the post-covid 19 era

Leading industrial decarbonisation in the post-covid 19 era

The first in the Decarb Connect Podcast series we were privileged to talk with Pratima Rangarajan, CEO of OGCI, and Dominic Emery, Chief of Staff at BP. The conversation was an opportunity to get their thoughts on how companies across the hard to abate sector can deliver leadership on decarbonisation in the post-covid era.

Central to the conversation was the eye-opening stat that the near-global shutdown had reduced emissions by just 4-8%. With this as context, we talked about how different companies are stepping up and the increasing ambition around targets and strategies that are being set. We also talked about the policy/leadership frameworks and workforce skills that will be essential to decarbonise at scale.  Dr. Pratima Rangarajan is the CEO of OGCI Climate Investments, a fund set up to reduce carbon emissions in the energy, industrial and transportation sectors. Before joining OGCI Climate Investments. Pratima was the General Manager for GE’s Onshore Wind product Line and the General Manager for GE’s Energy Storage Start up. She had previously held the role of Deputy Chief Technology Officer and Senior Vice President, Emerging Technology and Research at Vestas Wind Systems. Pratima has a PhD in chemical engineering from Princeton University and a BS in Chemical engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Dr. Dominic Emery was the founding CEO of OGCI Climate Investments, a $1bn fund set up by oil and gas companies to invest in technologies and projects to reduce carbon emissions. Dominic is a geology graduate and has worked for bp since 1986. He has held positions in BP’s Exploration and Production Division, in Asia and the Middle East, and also in the UK North Sea. Dominic has led Gas and Power business development in Europe, as well as running power and utility assets at BP industrial sites. He joined bp Alternative Energy in 2007, ran Emerging Business & Corporate Ventures in 2012. In 2013 he moved to the role of VP, Group Strategic Planning, responsible for strategy development, long-term planning and policy.  He was appointed to his current role in February 2020 and is also on the Board of the EITI (Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative).
