N‘Yeurt, Antoine de Ramon; et al. (2012): Negative carbon via Ocean Afforestation

N‘Yeurt, Antoine de Ramon; Chynoweth, David P.; Capron, Mark E.; Stewart, Jim R.; Hasan, Mohammed A. (2012): Negative carbon via Ocean Afforestation. In: Process Safety and Environmental Protection 90 (6), pp. 467–474.

"This analysis shows the potential of Ocean Afforestation to produce 12 billion tons per year of biomethane while storing 19 billion tons of CO2 per year directly from biogas production, plus up to 34 billion tons per year from carbon capture of the biomethane combustion exhaust."

McGlashan, Niall; et al. (2012): High-level techno-economic assessment of negative emissions technologies

McGlashan, Niall; Shah, Nilay; Caldecott, Ben; Workman, Mark (2012): High-level techno-economic assessment of negative emissions technologies. In: Process Safety and Environmental Protection 90 (6), pp. 501–510.

"This paper presents results from research conducted to provide a high level techno-economic and performance assessments of various emerging technologies for capturing CO2 from the air, directly and indirectly, on a life-cycle basis. The technologies assessed include ‘artificial trees’, the soda lime process, augmented ocean disposal, biochar and bio-energy with carbon capture and storage."

Boucher, J.-F; et al. (2012): Can boreal afforestation help offset incompressible GHG emissions from Canadian industries?

Boucher, J.-F; Tremblay, P.; Gaboury, S.; Villeneuve, C. (2012): Can boreal afforestation help offset incompressible GHG emissions from Canadian industries? In: Process Safety and Environmental Protection 90 (6), pp. 459–466.

Modeling afforestation in Canada. "Alternatively, a new offset opportunity is being analysed in Canada: the afforestation of open woodlands (OWs) in the boreal territory."

Baum, Seth D.; et al. (2013): Double catastrophe: intermittent stratospheric geoengineering induced by societal collapse. (forthcoming)

Baum, Seth D.; Maher, Timothy M.; Haqq-Misra, Jacob (2013): Double catastrophe: intermittent stratospheric geoengineering induced by societal collapse. (forthcoming). In: Environ Syst Decis.

"This paper analyzes a scenario in which SAI brings great harm on its own. The scenario is based on the issue of SAI intermittency, in which aerosol injection is halted, sending temperatures rapidly back toward where they would have been without SAI."
