On Planet Philadelphia this Friday: We talk carbon capture with Dr. Jennifer Wilcox, who was recently appointed Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Fossil Energy at the DOE in the Biden/Harris administration.
How necessary and feasible is carbon capture, especially from the air, for decreasing the CO2 in the atmosphere and in order to forestall climate change? We will discuss this with Dr. Jennifer Wilcox. We spoke with her just before she was just appointed Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Fossil Energy at the DOE in the Biden/Harris administration. Dr. Wilcox talks holistically about the recent developments in carbon capture and how these fit into an overall system of lowering CO2 gases.
Dr. Wilcox was most recently the Presidential Distinguished Professor of Chemical Engineering and Energy Policy at the University of Pennsylvania, and a Senior Fellow at the World Resources Institute. Wilcox's work examines the nexus of energy and the environment, developing strategies to minimize negative climate impacts associated with society's dependence on fossil fuels. Wilcox holds a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering and M.A. in Chemistry from the University of Arizona and B.A. in Mathematics from Wellesley College. Her research focuses on innovative ways to avoid new CO2 emissions from entering the air as well as the removal of old emissions. She is an author of a book on carbon capture/removal and an editor of a recent primer on the subject, “Carbon Dioxide Removal Primer”.
