GHG Monitor: CO2 Utilization Markets Helping to Incentivize Air Capture Techs

Forum article on direct air capture. "After a period of relative stagnation following the collapse of climate negotiations in the U.S. Congress and the United Nations, some supporters said they are starting to see several direct air capture (DAC) technologies emerge, responding to demand from CO2 utilization markets like enhanced oil recovery and algae-based biofuels."

Becker, K.; et al. (2013): Carbon farming in hot, dry coastal areas: an option for climate change mitigation

Becker, K.; Wulfmeyer, V.; Berger, T.; Gebel, J.; Münch, W. (2013): Carbon farming in hot, dry coastal areas: an option for climate change mitigation. In Earth Syst. Dynam. 4 (2), pp. 237–251. DOI 10.5194/esd-4-237-2013.

"We present a comprehensive, interdisciplinary project which demonstrates that large-scale plantations of Jatropha curcas – if established in hot, dry coastal areas around the world – could capture 17–25 t of carbon dioxide per hectare per year from the atmosphere (over a 20 yr period)."
