Supplies from Artist-in-Residence Annalee
Teach your kids about the importance of climate-friendly products this holiday season while having fun with Carbon Crayons, produced in partnership with Annalee Levin of Captured Carbon Studios, Carbon Upcycling’s first “artist-in-residence”. Annalee wanted to create a space to explore captured carbon as an art medium and an avenue through which to educate the public about climate change and how we can work toward reversing it, making these perfect, affordable gifts for all ages.
How it works: Carbon Upcycling Technologies (CUT) captures CO2 from point sources, such as powerplants, and uses an absorption process to sequester the gaseous CO2 into inorganic solid materials in powder form. CUT uses the powder feedstocks to create advanced additives for industrial uses such as concrete, plastics, coatings and even consumer products. Since 2014, CUT has dramatically scaled its ability to capture CO2 emissions. Learn more about the science behind CUT’s products, and their reactor unit which produces 8 tons of CO2 embedded material per day.
