Job: Technology Analyst, Carbon Capture Systems (IEAGHG)

Deadline: 09. June 2021

"Being a focal point for IEAGHG in the area of capture systems, particularly capture from industrial sources such as cement, iron and steel, refineries, and in relation to hydrogen production. This will involve developing relationships and co-operative activities with relevant industrial companies and technology developers globally. An interest / background in capture for negative emission technologies would be useful."

Call for Proposals (Panels and Presentations): 1st Annual Conference on Carbon Removal Law and Policy

Deadline: 18. June 2021

"The focus of the conference will be on law and policy issues associated with ocean carbon removal approaches, including, but not limited to the following issues:

Governance of ocean-based carbon dioxide removal approaches at national and sub-national scales, as well as the role of international treaty regimes and principles of customary international law;

The role and application of principles of equity and social justice in ocean-based carbon dioxide removal research and deployment;

Methodologies for, and challenges in, constructing effective architectures for public engagement on ocean-based carbon dioxide removal approaches."

Bhowmick, Mansi; et al. (2021): Response of the Indian summer monsoon to global warming, solar geoengineering and its termination

Bhowmick, Mansi; Mishra, Saroj Kanta; Kravitz, Ben; Sahany, Sandeep; Salunke, Popat (2021): Response of the Indian summer monsoon to global warming, solar geoengineering and its termination. In Sci Rep 11 (1), p. 9791. DOI: 10.1038/s41598-021-89249-6.

The response of the Indian Summer Monsoon (ISM) to global warming, solar geoengineering and its termination is examined using the multi-model mean of seven global climate model simulations from G2 experiment of the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project.

Bach, Lennart T.; et al. (2021): Testing the climate intervention potential of ocean afforestation using the Great Atlantic Sargassum Belt

Bach, Lennart T.; Tamsitt, Veronica; Gower, Jim; Hurd, Catriona L.; Raven, John A.; Boyd, Philip W. (2021): Testing the climate intervention potential of ocean afforestation using the Great Atlantic Sargassum Belt. In Nat Comms 12 (1), p. 2556. DOI: 10.1038/s41467-021-22837-2.

"Here, we analyse the CDR potential of recent re-occurring trans-basin belts of the floating seaweed Sargassum in the (sub)tropical North Atlantic as a natural analogue for ocean afforestation. We show that two biogeochemical feedbacks, nutrient reallocation and calcification by encrusting marine life, reduce the CDR efficacy of Sargassum by 20–100%."

Berkeley: Researchers outline strategy for biomass carbon capture in Europe

"Two researchers affiliated with the Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management, alum Lorenzo Rosa and assistant Cooperative Extension specialist Daniel Sanchez, are co-authors on a new study that calculates the potential of one such technology in Europe. The technology involves a combination of biomass energy generation with the capture and storage of CO2, or bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS)."
