“Graciela Chichilnisky, who has worked extensively on the Kyoto Protocol and created the carbon market, has recently launched Global Thermostat (GT). The company designs and creates renewable energy plants capable of capturing CO2 in conjunction with heavy industrial processes such as metals melting, cement production, and petrochemical refining. GT can also extract CO2 directly from the air, either by utilising the residual heat of an industrial facility to do so, if co-located to an industry, or by burning fuel in its own gas turbines to generate the heat and electricity needed for the process. The result is thus genius and simple:
Suck CO2, either directly from the air of from industries whilst producing, and convert it into clean and fresh air.
GT is indeed capable of turning the equation more energy = more pollution into more energy = less pollution.
Global Thermostat estimates that its process can remove 5 pounds of CO2 per kWh of electricity, as opposed to U.S. coal-fired power stations which currently emit 2 pounds of CO2 for every kWh of electricity created.
Global Thermostat was thus voted “World’s Top Ten Most Innovative Company” in Energy and Dr. Chichilnisky was selected as the 2015 “CEO of the Year” awarded by IAIR at Yale University Club in NYC on April 16.”
