Carbon Mitigation Virtual Workshop
About this Event
In 2018, U.S. greenhouse gas emissions totaled 6.7 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalents. Pressure to mitigate these emissions is rapidly increasing to address the developing climate crisis. There is nothing simple about reducing carbon emissions. It is a topic that is rife with preconceptions and fears as well as technological, economical, and institutional difficulties.
This interactive virtual workshop hosted by the Technology Collaboration Center in partnership with the Gulf Coast Carbon Collaborative will create adequate opportunities to feature and discuss novel and “unusual” solutions. Participants will be encouraged to participate in breakout sessions for different mitigation approaches.

Technology Collaboration Center Workshop
The Technology Collaboration Center (TCC) and Gulf Coast Carbon Collaborative aims to connect its members by facilitating the exchange of challenges and solutions and provide exposure to “unusual” solutions. The TCC will host this virtual workshop on November 17th, 2020, to identify several pragmatic and “unusual” carbon reduction opportunities. Workshop participants will identify key hurdles and barriers that slow us down. By the facilitated interaction with “unusual” experts you will be able to collaborate to identify and share pragmatic solutions.
Virtual Workshop Approach
The workshop will be organized around 4 main carbon mitigation approaches. Handling your own CO2 molecules [Direct] or any CO2 molecules [Indirect]. Avoiding CO2 emissions [Avoid] or capturing and storing CO2 [Store].
- A: Direct-Avoid [e.g.: energy efficiency, switch to renewable power]
- B: Indirect-Avoid [e.g.: offset credits for forest conservation, renewable power credits]
- C: Direct- Store [e.g.: Carbon capture
