Three years ago, I was in Hamburg, walking through green parks and stopping by at Nord Coast Coffee Roastery next to Isebekkanal. Today, I am sitting next to our slowly melting lake in Umeå, thinking that in a month from now, there will hopefully be flowers here as well.

Otherwise, I just submitted a grant application together with some researchers at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm to MISTRA. The application is about the possibilities of using thermal waste energy from nuclear power plants to capture carbon dioxide from ambient air which is an idea that could potentially revolutionize Sweden’s mitigation efforts and bring some much-needed realism to Sweden’s goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2045. Based on the grant proposal, I have also started working on a journal paper that situates Nuclear-powered Direct Air Capture (or N-DAC for short) in relation to other negative emissions technologies (NETs).
