On hACathon, Justin Tyler Tate will demonstrate how to modify your air conditioning unit into a fully functioning carbon capture device, complete with snacks.
hACkathon encourages individuals to dissemble, examine, hack and repurpose discarded or functional air-conditioning units for the purpose of giving them the added passive functionality of extracting carbon from the atmosphere. Through research conducted for hACkathon, a methodology was discovered that can be applied to all types of AC units. This method is explained in detail during the 30 minute long hACkathon radio program, where the host - Justin Tyler Tate - walks participants through a process of designing and building their own parasitic passive carbon capture devices to augment their air conditioning units using readily available materials and processes. As Individuals cool their spaces in the increasingly hotter summer months, they will also be passively capturing carbon and offsetting their ecological footprint.
