Eating Dangerously: How a Chemist’s “Poison Squad” Won the Battle for Food Safety in the US

Frontier Fridays: Sorbent-based Direct Air Capture of CO₂ at Scale
According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), direct air capture (DAC) is currently operating at just 18 plants worldwide and only collecting 0.01 million metric tons of CO₂ combined per year. To stay on track to meet IEA 2050 net zero goals and limit global warming to 1.5˚C, DAC will need to scale up to capture 60 million metric tons per year worldwide by 2030 alone. So, limiting factors, including cost, materials, thermal and fluid management, process engineering and advanced manufacturing need to be addressed quickly!
