Opportunity Notice: Carbon Removal + Concrete_Four Corners Carbon Removal Coalition

In summer 2022 the Four Corners Carbon Removal Coalition will pilot its first joint request for proposals (RFP) for carbon removal services in partnership with a handful of other climate-forward municipalities in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah.

In this webinar OpenAir co-founder Chris Neidl, joined by Boulder County and Flagstaff sustainability leadership, presents an overview of this upcoming opportunity. Attendees will be invited to submit comments and questions in order to both clarify the initiative goals and terms, as well as further inform the scope and direction of the subsequent RFP this summer.

For this initial solicitation the coalition will seek proposals for applications that realize durable, verifiable carbon removal through integration with local concrete production.

CO-HOSTED by OpenAir, the Boulder County Office of Sustainability, Climate Action and Resilience, the Flagstaff Sustainability Office and the Direct Air Capture Coalition.


In November 2021 during the COP 26 climate conference in Glasgow, Boulder County, CO and Flagstaff, AZ first announced their plan to form the Four Corners Carbon Removal Coalition, a new initiative that will combine the resources and energy of local governments in U.S. Western States to rapidly build demand for high impact, equity-based and locally-rooted carbon removal innovation.
