Joachim Katchinoff and Kevin Vu of Crew Carbon In episode #80 of Open Air’s video series, “This is CDR”, featured Joachim Katchinoff and Kevin Vu from Crew Carbon. This company approaches carbon removal through enhanced weathering in wastewater facilities. Crew Carbon's approach combines nature-based solutions with engineered processes to enhance carbon dioxide removal (CDR) and help combat climate change. Enhanced weathering is the process of accelerating the natural weathering reactions that remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere by exposing rocks to CO2-rich compounds. This process dissolves the rocks and converts CO2 into a ...
