The Negative Emissions Technology Project is a team of undergraduate students who are interested in learning about and applying carbon removal methods to help reverse climate change. We currently have two ongoing projects.
- Our first project involves integrating a scaled down Direct Air Capture unit (using Metal Organic Frameworks) with an HVAC unit to capture CO2 from a concentrated source. We hope to convert this CO2 to electricity and fuel that can power the building using photovoltaics . We are still in the initial stages of this project and are currently assessing the feasibility of this idea in terms of energy and cost.
- Our second project is a collaboration with the Energy Futures Institute where we will be helping them build and improve a model to build out region specific profiles for carbon removal pathways. We have agreed to work with them through early September and will re-evaluate at that time. We will continue recruiting members through the fall of 2021 and hope to expand our project portfolio as well!
