Rewind — Terrestrial Biomass Sinking in Anoxic Zones (This is CDR)
OpenAir is excited to present This Is CDR, an online event series that explores the wide range of carbon dioxide removal (CDR) solutions currently being researched, developed, and deployed, and discusses them in the context of CDR policies OpenAir seeks to formulate and advance at every level of government in the U.S., as well as in national and subnational jurisdictions globally.
This week we are pleased to welcome Rewind Co-Founders Ram Amar and Professor Dror Angel who will discuss the company's approach to CDR via terrestrial biomass sinking in anoxic zones of the Black Sea.
Ram Amar is the CEO of Rewind.earth. Ram’s background is in physics, computer science and entrepreneurship. Since selling his previous startup, Alooma, to Google, Ram has turned to work on mitigating the climate crisis. He co-founded a think tank and advocacy project for a Net Zero Israel, started a community of entrepreneurs transitioning to climate-tech, and after 3 years of research, co-founded Rewind.
Prof. Dror Angel leads the Applied Marine Biology & Ecology Research group at the Department of Maritime Civilizations, University of Haifa. He studies a variety of environmental issues that affect and are affected by human activities, such as aquaculture and microplastic pollution. Dror’s group explores ecological and socio-economic consequences of invasive species and jellyfish blooms, employs citizen science in the study of jellyfish and has developed a public website and application for this purpose. The group also studies carbon sequestration as a means to combat climate change and the key scientific processes involved.
