Bipartisan Policy Center’s Direct Air Capture Day

DATE: June 22, 2022
TIME: 3:00PM – 7:00PM EST
LOCATION: Planet Word, 925 13th Street Northwest, Washington, DC 20005

On Wednesday, June 22, Rhodium Associate Director Whitney Herndon will speak at the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Direct Air Capture Day event. Direct air capture (DAC) technologies are an essential component of the toolkit needed to reach net zero emissions but are yet to be demonstrated at the scale necessary for climate impact. To help address this, last year’s bipartisan infrastructure bill included $3.5 billion for the creation of four regional DAC Hubs over the next five years. These Hubs are a once-in-a-generation opportunity to deploy, demonstrate, and innovate DAC technologies through shared infrastructure and resources in regions throughout the United States. The Department of Energy has made clear their intent to maintain robust community engagement and maximize the effectiveness of the Hubs, but these efforts are just beginning to take shape.
