 BattelleStefan Metzger Non-Profit Cross-Cutting Direct flux mapping, Ground truth, Nature-based solutions, Technological solutions, Traveling standard, GeoreferencingDIRECT FLUX MAPPING: extensive georeferenced ground truth unlocks cross-discipline potential.

SUMMARY: We provide directly measured greenhouse gas exchange maps for impartial monitoring, development and validation of nature-based and technological carbon dioxide removal (CDR). Unique benefits include hourly and decameter map resolution, process attribution, quantification of co-emissions (e.g., CH4, N2O) and bio-physical co-benefits (e.g., heat, albedo).

BACKGROUND: Carbon quantification for individual CDR systems has greatly progressed, e.g. of agricultural soils, forest aboveground biomass, or industry and urban emissions. However, comparability of these wide-ranging quantification approaches within and across systems remains a challenge to enabling net-effective CDR, and equitable carbon market mechanisms.

INTEREST: Eddy-covariance measurements as mentioned by the California Air Resource Board Low Carbon Fuel Standard are capable of impartial quantification across this broad range of applications. This is accomplished by direct, sub-second measurements of molecules into and out of the very atmosphere that connects all CDR systems, from masts, aircraft or vessels. Yet, traditional eddy-covariance measurements are expensive per unit area and difficult to use.

CAPABILITIES: We unlock the potential for impartial quantification across CDR systems by transferring eddy-covariance into ready-to-use greenhouse gas exchange maps. The georeferenced maps combine observational assets in the most efficient way to provide order-of-magnitude improved economy, certainty, and ease-of-use over status quo approaches.

APPLICATIONS: A decade of successful applications range from natural and agricultural emissions, over industry leak detection and urban air quality, to extensive ground truth for remote sensing and modeling. Additional information can be found at https://tinyurl.com/direct-flux-mapping .

 ClimastryJake Stevens Small Business Advanced Manufacturing (Industrial) Sustainability-link project financing with Manufacturer Carbon CreditsClimastry gets manufacturers paid for decarbonizing. We do this by commoditizing net-zero projects for listing on the voluntary carbon market (VCM). We invented the only statistically significant method of estimating emissions from manufacturing operations: piece-rate emissions factors, through funding from the UKRI. This allows SMMs to safely access sustainability-linked debt capital markets. Our pilot cohort companies are the first to exercise this market mechanism.

The Climastry platform assesses and presents decarbonization and detoxification solution pathways to engineers which occasionally includes partners we've identified. There is a strong interest from the R&D community in these credits to fund deployment but supporting early stage entrepreneurs is much more nuanced than providing capital alone - particularly with LCAs for chemical and thermal processes.

Capacities:
- Emissions Baselining
- Sustainability Management
- Project-level net-zero initiative mapping
- Piece-rate emissions factor manufacturing process assignment
- Emissions factor building

Developing:
- Process engineering AI
- Landscape architecture AI

Seeking:
- Sustainability partners - those looking to scale sustainable technology within manufacturers
- Audit partners - those supporting organizations with managed ESG disclosure
- Sustainability consultants - those supporting organizations with developing net-zero transition plans
- Specialty Emissions Accountants (by industry, process, or medium)
- FPGA & quantum engineers
- Supercomputer

 Ebb Carbon, Inc.Matthew Eisaman Small Business Carbon Capture Electrochemical approaches to marine carbon dioxide removalEbb Carbon uses low-carbon electricity to accelerate natural ocean processes, pulling carbon dioxide out of the air to safely store the carbon in the ocean as bicarbonate. Electrochemical approaches boost nature’s carbon cycle in a way that is safe and within the bounds of natural ocean pH cycles. The process uses electricity and membranes to separate salt water into slightly alkaline seawater and an acid stream that can be sold for commercial uses or used in processes that capture additional carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Electrochemical approaches have the potential to be one of the largest scale and lowest cost approaches to remove excess carbon dioxide from our atmosphere. Ebb Carbon technology is modular and scalable, with the first 100 ton installation being readied for field trials in 2022. With ~1,000 tons of removal capacity in 2023 and ~10,000 tons in 2024, over the next five years Ebb Carbon plans to deploy a megaton (1 million tons) of carbon removal systems. Together with other strategies to capture carbon and vigorous efforts to reduce dependency on fossil fuels, Ebb is harnessing the power of the ocean to help heal the planet and rechart our course towards a sustainable future for all of Earth’s inhabitants.

 Air Quality Solutions Worldwide DACJohn R West Small Business Carbon Capture TA-3Air Quality Solutions Worldwide DAC (AQSWWDAC) is a Direct Air Capture (DAC) firm launching its first DAC units in January 2023. Our DAC already has its global infrastructure in place as it retrofit to all global, commercial building HVAC systems. It uses no new net energy but rather reduces building amps used slightly as it reduces the buffeting of the large cooling tower fans. We have both dry sorbent filter and water filter versions of our DAC. The dry sorbent filter version captures only CO2. The water filter version captures CO2, Methane, Ozone, and Heavy Particulates. Each water filter version captures about 400 tonnes CO2 per year which adds up quickly when you consider we could have hundreds, if not thousands of DAC units running simultaneously depending on the size of the city. For example, New York City has about 3800 registered cooling towers. If we retrofit to 70% that would be 2700 DAC units for New York City alone. We have already contacted a DOE national lab and are in discussions with them. With our water based system there is no longer a need to wait for emissions to be cut, as we will be capturing/cleaning many of them until they are cut. Our cost to capture rate is well below to two best known DAC companies.

 Blue PlanetMohamad El Hajj Younes Small Business Carbon Capture Carbon Mineralization and the Usage of the Carbon Star Rating SystemBlue Planet Systems Corporation, was founded in 2012 to commercialize a revolutionary approach to CO2
management at the gigatonne scale by converting captured CO2 into limestone construction aggregates where
it is permanently sequestered into building materials.
Blue Planet uses it’s proprietary Geomimetic ® process, that mimics similar natural chemical processes that
have regulated Earth’s atmospheric CO2 over many hundreds of millions of years and created coral reefs, the
White Cliffs of Dover, and almost all natural limestone, which contain most of Earth’s carbon.
Without complex CO2 separation or purification steps or reliance on subsidies, and now ready to implement
with existing aggregate handling infrastructure available worldwide, Blue Planet believes it has developed the
only truly scalable method for capturing and permanently managing billions of tonnes of CO2 before 2035.

 Argonne National LaboratoryMichael Wang Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) Cross-Cutting  Life Cycle Analysis (LCA): Argonne National Laboratory develops and applies life cycle analysis (LCA) methodology, data, and modeling framework within the Greenhouse gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy use in Technologies (GREET®) model to holistically evaluate and quantify cradle-to-grave emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) of different energy technologies, including CO2 removal (CDR), capture, and utilization technologies. GREET LCA evaluates the environmental impacts of capture-to-delivery activities throughout supply chains of industry and ambient CO2 capture, in addition to CO2 compression for pipeline transport to sequestration and/or utilization sites. For CO2 utilization, GREET LCA evaluates the environmental impacts of generation, distribution, and consumption of electricity and hydrogen from various feedstock sources and technology options, as well as embodied emissions associated with infrastructure. Argonne conducts LCA to evaluate GHG emissions associated with various CDR technologies and inform the research, development, and deployment of CDR technologies with consistent reporting of cradle-to-grave LCA results.

Techno-Economic Analysis (TEA): ANL has conducted extensive technoeconomic analysis (TEA) of CO2 capture, utilization, and sequestration, including CO2 supply chain analysis, CO2 capture modeling, CO2 pipeline cost modeling, and CO2 conversion process modeling. Further, the detailed energy and mass balance data developed for TEA are used in GREET LCA so that LCA and TEA are based on consistent datasets.

Energy Equity and Environmental Justice (EEEJ): Argonne’s comprehensive online mapping tool capabilities are built on an extensive catalog of data layers, including energy resources and infrastructure, as well as relevant information that can inform siting decisions of CDR technologies. Regarding Environmental Burdens on local communities, Argonne examines the place-based emissions benefits of deploying alternative fuel applications and fueling infrastructure in energy justice neighborhoods. Argonne’s community-driven science framework helps inform DOE’s RDD&D efforts. Argonne has a long history of supporting the national clean cities network through technology integration and community engagement. Argonne’s Workforce Development programs are helping to build a diverse, domestic workforce with the knowledge and hands-on experience that will help our nation transition to clean energy and transportation.

 Yard Stick PBCChristopher Tolles Small Business Cross-Cutting soil, soil carbon, soil CDR, soil carbon MRV, soil carbon stock quantificationOur Mission:
Yard Stick provides easy, accurate, and affordable quantification of soil carbon stocks. Our mission is to enable gigaton-scale agricultural carbon sequestration via scalable, trustworthy measurement solutions. We are the measurement backbone of soil carbon.

Scientists and farmers alike have known for decades that climate-friendly agricultural practices have the potential to remove atmospheric GHGs at gigaton/year scale. But significant measurement challenges have held soil carbon back - until now. By reducing the cost of statistically-sound and agronomically-legitimate soil carbon measurement by 90%+, Yard Stick will dramatically expand the opportunities for evidence-based regenerative agriculture and ranching practices to simultaneously improve ecosystem health, increase farmer/rancher livelihoods, and combat climate change.


Our Technology:
Powered by technologies from the world’s top soil scientists and supported by leading grant funders and venture investors, Yard Stick brings soil carbon measurement into the 21st century. Our solution spans an integrated suite of software and hardware offerings which solve key soil carbon measurement challenges.

Our flagship hardware technology is a rapid, in situ soil organic carbon (SOC) and bulk density (BD) measurement probe for field evaluation of soil carbon stocks. This handheld device, based on over a decade of soil spectroscopy research, is currently being validated in Midwest farming contexts and, at maturity, will replace conventional soil sampling and labs.

Yard Stick’s broader software offering, available now, combines technologies that standardize and economize sample plan creation, sample tracking, and soil C stock data management in an integrated web-based platform. These features help establish a single SOC data authority - a key requirement as regen ag and soil C efforts mature.

Our work is funded by significant recent USDA Climate Smart Commodities awards, additional grants from ARPA-E, NSF, and CDFA, as well as by leading climate investors such as Breakthrough Energy Ventures (Bill Gate's climate fund) and Lowercarbon Capital (Chris and Crystal Sacca's climate fund). Additionally, our co-founding scientific advisory team features some of the most highly-regarded soil scientists in the world, including Dr. Cristine Morgan of the Soil Health Institute.
