Dr. Sean Monkman, senior vice president of technology development at CarbonCure has been named Canada’s Mission Innovation Champion at the Clean Energy Clean Energy Ministerial summit.
Mission Innovation, a global initiative involving 22 countries and the European Commission, has identified carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCUS) as one of eight innovation challenges that are key to reducing emissions. Champions were selected from member countries to celebrate individuals with a track record of progressing creative new ideas that drive the pace of clean energy.
Dr. Monkman will represent Canada’s innovation potential and share lessons on developing scalable CCU climate solutions in partnership with government and industry.
CarbonCure is a member of Breakthrough Energy Ventures, a private fund chaired by Bill Gates to complement the public sector clean energy commitments made by the Mission Innovation’s founding member countries.
