Honegger, Matthias; et al. (2021): Who is paying for carbon dioxide removal? Designing policy instruments for mobilizing negative emissions technologies

Honegger, Matthias; Poralla, Matthias; Michaelowa, Axel; Ahonen, Hanna-Mari (2021): Who is paying for carbon dioxide removal? Designing policy instruments for mobilizing negative emissions technologies. In Front. Clim. 3, p. 50. DOI: 10.3389/fclim.2021.672996.

"In this policy and practice review, we develop six functions jointly needed for policy mixes mobilizing CDR in a manner compatible with the Paris Agreement’s objectives. We discuss the emerging CDR financing efforts in light of these functions, and we chart a path to a meaningful long-term structuring of policies and financing instruments."
