Tackling Industrial Plastic Recycling

To claim success in developing a circular economy for plastic, billions of kilograms of hard-to-recycle plastics must be transformed into reusable circular materials. We chat with several companies driving this goal and discuss the enormity of the logistical and technological challenges in tackling plastic waste.

Why Voluntary Carbon Credits are not a Commodity

Carbon Markets
Marcelo Labre, CEO of Viridios AI, joins Paul to discuss his recent white paper. He believes Voluntary Carbon Market (VCM) credits are a fundamentally misunderstood asset class. They are being positioned as a commodity when, in reality, they are much more like corporate bonds. Classifying and treating voluntary carbon credits appropriately as an asset class will unleash the full potential of this asset cla

How is Europe Replacing Russian Oil & Gas?

Carbon Markets
The Ukranian invasion exposed the deficiencies of EU energy policy via its dependence on Russian gas. While Brussels fast-tracks its efforts for a renewable future, natural gas will remain the dominant fuel for the industry for the rest of the decade. With few long-term contracts in place, how does the EU ensure secure gas supplies in the years ahead?

Is a Wave of European LNG Contracts Underway?

Supply Chain
A discussion about how booming U.S. liquefied natural gas production has helped Europe displace Russian natural gas imports. Going forward, buyers on the continent will need to sign more long-term LNG supply contracts to ensure energy security and to help avert the record high prices of 2022 in the future. The conversation between Natural Gas Intelligence and Climate Transformed will focus on how those negotiations are evolving in a competitive global market and a bit about how such deals would conflict with Europe’s broader environmental targets.

CO2 Permanence: Are we being distracted by the quest for perfect

Carbon Markets
We discuss whether cheaper solutions that do not offer permanent carbon storage should be fast-tracked to “kick the can down the road.” We are not considering storage solutions for 100 years, yet history tells us that innovation in 2123 will be far superior to today. Should we embrace a temporary solution as part of a sequestration strategy?

EU EV Policy

Conventional wisdom has the EU as the global leader in EV adoption, ex China. A supported domestic policy framework has been key to this, but the US Inflation Reduction Act has swamped Europe’s efforts. Does European EV policy risk being relegated?

US EV Policy – Inflation Reduction Act

Excitement about the IRA is all-encompassing, and while electric vehicle infrastructure proposals are impressive, how quickly will this boost adoption? Subsidies help, but with charging infrastructure lagging every other developed country and cost parity many years away, is US EV adoption destined to lag?
