Wilcox discusses carbon capture with The Daily Beast

Jennifer Wilcox, associate professor of chemical and biological engineering at Colorado School of Mines, was recently interviewed by The Daily Beast about carbon capture and storage (CCS) and direct air capture (DAC), technologies that can remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. 

From the article:

DAC could potentially reverse the effects of climate change, but it’s not a band-aid. Rather, Wilcox says, it should be seen as a part of a whole portfolio of options (such as renewable energy sources, CCS and reducing waste) to solve the emissions problem.

“We have to be careful with this approach because it can tempt people to keep burning fossil fuels,” Wilcox said. “It can’t be seen as a silver bullet. It has to be one part of multiple options.”
