NYSE Floor Talk: Dr. Ken Anderson
Dr. Scott Hamilton-Brehm discusses the fundamentals of why removing atmospheric carbon dioxide is difficult. The relevance of thermodynamics must be recognized if we are to devise solution to stop climate change. The goal is to remove atmospheric carbon dioxide, we do not have to bury it as the same molecule, we just have to sequester the carbon.
ENERGY TRANSITION SOLUTIONS Podcast
In this episode, our host Joe Batir talks with Dr. Ken Anderson and Dr. Scott Hamilton-Brehm from Thermaquatica about Carbon Capture using a process called Oxidative Hydrothermal Dissolution (OHD). In this show, they discuss what OHD is, how this process can capture significant amounts of carbon, and how this can become a truly carbon negative technology. Read full article >

A student-led team from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale was awarded $250,000 from the Musk Foundation as one of 23 X-Prize winners. The team’s research is focused on capturing CO2 from the atmosphere through collected biomass followed by application of Thermaquatica’s patented OHD process to retain the organic carbon in liquid form. The carbon-rich liquid is then pumped into a deep sub-surface environment for permanent sequestration. Early research shows that deep underground microbes are consuming the liquid carbon mixture. This novel form of Direct Air Capture (DAC) relies on natural processes for capture, conversion, and storage of carbon.
