When you hear “3M” you think of Post-it notes, right? Not so fast. 3M is innovating in cleantech and breaking new ground, especially in reducing carbon emissions

With the U.S. Department of Energy's Advanced Projects Research Agency-Energy - aka ARPA-E - on the chopping block in Trump's budget proposal, we decided to re-air our interview with Laura Nereng of 3M about how she and her colleagues are tackling CO2 reduction in a remarkable way, with ARPA-E's unique and ground-breaking support.

Listen to Laura Nereng, Sustainability and Business Development Leader at 3M, formerly Program Manager of 3M’s Clean Energy Innovation, in her conversation with Green Connections Radio Host Joan Michelson and prepare to be amazed.

You'll learn about"

  • 3M’s carbon capture break-through that could change everything
  • How Laura and her innovative group developed it.
  • Lessons for being an "intrapreneur" leading innovation in a large organization.
  • Career tips for folks who do not have an engineering degree, and do this work successfully.
  • And more!

This interview took place at the 2013 ARPA-E Summit in Washington, DC recently.
