Yair is a Partner at Extantia Capital, a climate-first VC fund focused on deep decarbonisation technologies. Extantia invests in exceptional climate-tech founders who build the next “Gigacorns”, companies that are ultimately capable of saving in excess of 1Gt of CO2 emissions per year and are also commercially viable with scalable business models.

In this Episode, we will talk about Clean Tech 2.0, why hydrocarbons are having the biggest energy "umpf", and why is it so hard to replace them in our value chain.
In this episode we are addressing the following questions:

  1. What is for you the biggest difference between the clean tech 1.0 and clean tech 2.0?
  2. At Extantia you search for the gigacorns, can you please explain what that means?
  3. Can you please explain what hydrocarbons are for a non-technical person? How it is created? For what is it used?
  4. Do you need anything else than hydrocarbon to produce heat or electricity?
  5. Can you use other molecules / Materials as the base for materials, chemicals, etc?
  6. What kind of solutions/companies do you see in that space?
  7. Is it realistic to generate the complete demand for hydrocarbons through renewable resources?
  8. What is the biggest hurdle to producing hydrocarbon from renewable resources?
  9. From an investor perspective, what are your biggest bets in the climate tech sector in the next 5 years?
  10. As a retailer or manufacturer who would like to use plastic that is coming from green hydrocarbon. Where do you need to go? Is there already a solution?
