by Darrell Stonehouse, JWN Energy.

It’s going to take more than windmills, solar panels and energy efficiency to slow global warming, according to Issam Dairanieh, chief executive officer of CO2 Sciences, the research and development arm of the Global CO2 Initiative (GCI).

About The Global CO2 Initiative:

The Global CO2 Initiative (GCI) was created to develop and commercialize the trillion dollar CO2 products industry. These products use recycled CO2 as a key ingredient; examples include cement, aggregates, chemicals, polymers and carbon fiber. The Initiative coordinates with international partners focused on a common mission to deploy and scale CO2 products across multiple sectors.

CO2 Sciences, the non-profit arm of the GCI, will award R&D funding to qualified research applicants creating innovative technologies. The GCI commercialization arm will work in parallel to accelerate the market for CO2 products by investing in commercial-stage companies.
