Carbon A List: Why the Carbfix2 project is a big deal

"Add another milestone to 2017 for the world of negative carbon emissions. The decade old CarbFix project at the Hellisheidi geothermal plant has given birth to CarbFix2. This demonstration project integrates the world’s first direct air capture plant to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it in minerals. The overall project is a collaboration between Climeworks, Rekjavic Energy, and a number of international universities and relevant partners."

Stop GE Trees: Report: Large-scale Biosequestration Causing Negative Social and Environmental Impacts

"At the start of a major Climate Engineering Conference in Berlin, the Global Forest Coalition has launched a Working Paper that highlights the risks of different proposals for large-scale Carbon Dioxide Removal. The report finds that while the most prominent CDR approach, Bioenergy and Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) technology is still in a state of “infancy” and is unlikely to be rolled out on a global scale, biosequestration in the form of afforestation through monoculture tree plantations is already rapidly expanding and causing significant negative social and environmental impacts."
