climeworks: Climeworks and 44.01 to unlock the storage potential for air-captured CO₂

"To keep global warming to safe levels, science agrees that is not enough to only reduce emissions – we have to remove CO₂ from the atmosphere that has already been emitted. Climeworks’ direct air capture technology can capture unavoidable as well as historic CO₂ emissions directly from the air."

C2G Talk: An interview with Youba Sokona: How do we include sustainable development when considering climate-altering approaches?

"Context matters and without clarity on the impacts that climate-altering approaches will have from different perspectives, it will be difficult to deal with the ethical and governance dimensions, said Youba Sokona during a C2GTalk interview. He highlights the need for research that not only considers the global level, but seeks to understand the national and local levels where people’s lives are impacted."

E. G. Novitskii; et al. (2021): Optimization of Methods for Purification of Gas Mixtures to Remove Carbon Dioxide (A Review)

E. G. Novitskii; S. D. Bazhenov; A. V. Volkov (2021): Optimization of Methods for Purification of Gas Mixtures to Remove Carbon Dioxide (A Review). In Pet. Chem. 61 (4), pp. 407–423. DOI: 10.1134/S096554412105011X.

"This review provides an analysis of modern process technologies for carbon dioxide removal from various gas mixtures (such as natural gas or hydrocarbon conversion gases in ammonia and syngas production facilities), as well as from flue gases generated during the combustion of carbon-containing feedstocks in power plants."

Palmer, James; Carton, Wim (2021): Carbon Removal as Carbon Revival? Bioenergy, Negative Emissions, and the Politics of Alternative Energy Futures

Palmer, James; Carton, Wim (2021): Carbon Removal as Carbon Revival? Bioenergy, Negative Emissions, and the Politics of Alternative Energy Futures. In Front. Clim. 3, p. 60. DOI: 10.3389/fclim.2021.678031.

"This Perspective therefore calls for governance frameworks for carbon dioxide removal to adjudicate between conflicting approaches to achieving negative emissions not only on the basis of technical efficiency, or even ‘on-the-ground’ social and environmental impacts, but also according to compatibility with socially legitimate visions and understandings of what energy – and more specifically energy use – should ultimately be for in the post-fossil fuel era."

Petersen, Haley A.; Luca, Oana R. (2021): Application-specific thermodynamic favorability zones for direct air capture of carbon dioxide

Petersen, Haley A.; Luca, Oana R. (2021): Application-specific thermodynamic favorability zones for direct air capture of carbon dioxide. In Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys. DOI: 10.1039/D1CP01670A.

"This work utilizes Lackner's thermodynamic calculations for the capture of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere based on a single sorbent approximation to map thermodynamic favorability zones compatible with various applications."

Jebari, Joseph; et al. (2021): From Moral Hazard to Risk-Response Feedback

Jebari, Joseph; Andrews, Talbot M.; Aquila, Valentina; Beckage, Brian; Belaia, Mariia; Clifford, Maggie et al. (2021): From Moral Hazard to Risk-Response Feedback. In Climate Risk Management, p. 100324. DOI: 10.1016/j.crm.2021.100324.

"We argue that debates over “moral hazard” in response to carbon removal and geoengineering are unhelpful and misleading. We also propose an alternative framework for dealing with the tradeoffs that motivate the appeal to “moral hazard,” which we call “risk-response feedback.”"

BBC: Fish 'not as carbon friendly' as previously thought

"But a new study claims that catching fish using heavy nets that drag across the seabed - known as bottom trawling - emits about the same amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) globally as the aviation industry."
