Anupra Chandran

Project Lead | Kaptis | Canada

Anupra leads an early-stage clean-tech project called Kaptis. Kaptis was started because it’s no longer enough to rely on just reducing emissions anymore. We’ll have to remove ten gigatonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere per year by 2050, using tech like direct air capture (DAC). This project proposes to convert captured carbon dioxide to materials like graphene, which can be sold for a profit, improving the affordability of DAC. In the past, Anupra has worked with companies like Apollo Neuroscience and did a student project with XPRIZE to enhance recruitment of their $100M carbon capture prize.
