Engineering and Technology: On-board CO2-capture method could make long range ships carbon negative

"Researchers in the US have offered a practical way to make ships carbon neutral with CO2-capturing solid oxide fuel cells on-board.The method, proposed by a team at Northwestern University, suggests that after 'burning' traditional carbon-based fuels, the fuel cell generates concentrated CO2 that can be stored on-board the ship. From there, the CO2 can either be sequestered or recycled into renewable hydrocarbon fuel."

CNBC: Climate experts are worried about the toughest carbon emissions for companies to capture

"Scope 3 carbon emissions, or those not part of operations or under direct control, represent the majority of the carbon footprint for most companies, in some cases as high as 85% to 95%. As companies lay out ambitious carbon reduction targets and net-zero pledges for the decades ahead, slow progress on tracking Scope 3 emissions has climate experts worried."

GreenBiz: U.S. infrastructure bill lays foundation for carbon management economy

"It’s not the law of the land yet, but one of the most potentially impactful aspects of the bipartisan infrastructure bill for climate techies is the groundwork it lays for new economic opportunities based on capturing and sequestering carbon emissions. The support for the so-called carbon management economy takes many shapes within the bill, and is largely based on the SCALE Act reintroduced earlier this year by senators on both sides of the aisle. (SCALE stands for Storing CO2 and Lowering Emissions)."
