About the event

Decarbonization is becoming a focal point for many utilities and their customers. Corporations are committed to demonstrating how they reduce their carbon footprint and need the flexibility to meet their decarbonization goals. In many global cities, local governments are implementing carbon reduction programs that limit carbon emissions from more significant emitters. Distributed Carbon Capture is a technology deployed in New York City to help building owners reduce their emissions and move toward compliance with impending carbon regulations. Carbon capture is part of a solution that can address the traditionally hard-to-abate (cement and steel) and the rest of the industry, building, and district heating systems.

Governments and localities must stay flexible and remember that zero emissions are the goal, not a specific pathway. CarbonQuest has developed a Distributed Carbon Capture solution that is being deployed today to help businesses achieve these goals and reduce carbon emissions. Join NWGA for this webinar to hear Doug Staker, SVP of Customer Operations for CarbonQuest, explain their technology and business approach in New York City.
