Fluealgaentrepreneur: I looked at the site and I see lots of synergies relevant to wastewater remediation and CO2 sequestering projects and by products which could be mutually advantages.
My educational background is in part technical, and in part radical. Since my profession is in built environments, mostly residential , it appeals to me to consider radical technology as an essential ingredient to Solving for X.
Mathematics plays a very important role in my research into materials, energy and waste in the built environment.
The XPrize community recognizes carbon capture as a necessary part of climate policy and obviously also appreciates the challenges. I confess I was skeptical a few years ago but I see I was mistaken. We are facing an unprecedented re-build world wide and the opportunity to use technological tools to solve for x is equally immense. However, the bricks and mortar of this materials and energy technology conundrum remains the elephant in the room.
Waste, in every aspect of the sense, from energy to materials to biodiversity and more, could conceivably monetize the entire global rebuild initiative, remember Google... the data centers came after... a global rebuild will never simply never happen without vast sources of material and energy resources.
The platform is the built component which in turn supports the operating system technology can provide. This is in essence an algorithm, it's not yet clear to me how it could be applied as an operating systems language but I am willing to suggest its likely and important.
The approach I advocate currently is not clearly a Carbon capture process, though I have recognized the importance for many years in the evolution of my own work the conceptual relavence it embodies in energy materials and waste.
I'm greatful to be again rethinking carbon capture more strategically and expect to be able to also include stack emissions, since it is enevitablly a local component to any industrial urban ecology, and new innovations. Mutual cooperation is in our best interests. I can forward you an abstract as soon as I can research and incorporate the ideas now forming. shebuild.ca
