As more countries pursue deep decarbonization strategies, hydrogen will play a critical role in their energy transition. Novel considerations such as the availability of materials to support this transition need to be addressed in order to meet carbon neutrality targets.
The global market size for CO2 utilization is set to reach a market value of $70 billion by 2030, which will then increase to $550 billion by 2040.
Global CO2 emissions witnessed steady growth in the 21st century despite unprecedent action against climate change.

Renewable sources of carbon can include recycling, biomass, and CO2 from direct air capture or biogenic point sources. However, these sources each have different qualities, different availabilities, and different technologies needed. In short, each carbon source implies an entirely different value chain.
GPT-4 has unleashed an element of creativity in traditional AI: AI can now be leveraged to tackle systems-level innovations that are prerequisite to tackle hard problems like climate change. Given the promise of far-reaching implications, corporate boards want to know:
- Can GPT-4 accelerate R&D success for a large, leading manufacturer of polyethylene terephthalate?
- How could GPT-4 shorten time-to-market for a new energy drink?
- In which large, industrialized city will residential customers disrupt the traditional utility model by leveraging GPT-4 to unshackle themselves from the monopoly of their electric utility?
Heavy industries like steel, cement, and aluminum are crucial to society but are also major emitters of greenhouse gasses. Companies in this space are all under significant pressure to decarbonize but are they making enough progress?
This webinar uses the Lux Carbon Canvas to map industrial companies, evaluate their decarbonization efforts, and build future strategies for industrial decarbonization.

Verra — which plays in the voluntary carbon market — has been accused of accrediting carbon offsets that don’t meaningfully reduce carbon emissions. Some companies like Gucci, which purchased carbon credits using Verra’s certifications, have since dropped their claims of carbon neutrality. What does this mean for Verra, carbon credits, and companies seeking to use them?

In late April 2023, the U.S. EPA released a draft of its National Strategy to Prevent Plastic Pollution, which aims to improve America’s recycling infrastructure and reduce the amount of plastics entering the ocean. This brief breaks down the major elements of the draft, lays out how it differs from the National Recycling Strategy, and explores what the outlook is for plastic waste policy in the U.S.
In June, 3M agreed to a settlement on water contamination from per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). This settlement is just a portion of the liability that 3M faces related to PFAS, which could easily include another USD 10 billion or more for a wide range of claimants. These settlements (and others) will create a large PFAS remediation market and spur the growth of PFAS-free products, for which materials innovations are already beginning to emerge. The future trajectory of PFAS is fairly clear at this point. The real question is: What are the next PFAS? And who is the next 3M?
