Event: CCUS 2021

12.-14. October 2021, online

"CCUS 2021: Leading on net zero and clean growth is a three-day virtual conference from 12th - 14th October, hosted by the Carbon Capture and Storage Association. The event will provide delegates with the latest developments in this rapidly evolving sector. It will include a number of parallel programmes that enable you to explore the wider landscape for CCUS and to deep-dive into specific aspects of project delivery. CCUS 2021 will provide you with a unique perspective on CCUS developments both in the UK and overseas. The conference will also enable networking between the CCUS industry, stakeholders, policymakers and researchers."

Event: The Race to Scale Supply: 5th Puro.earth Carbon Removal Ecosystem Meeting

12. October 2021, online

"Our deadline is tight, we must remove vast amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere to avert the worst consequences to the climate. So, we must act fast and scale the carbon removal industry in the 2020’s. In our last meeting, we focused on the shift from support by pioneer carbon removal buyers, such as Microsoft and Shopify, to investors allocating capital toward removal suppliers. This time we focus on the race to scale carbon removal supply in all sectors, how big and small companies are transforming their businesses to remove carbon and how Puro.earth is enabling the scale up."

Event: ChBE Seminar: Negative Emissions Technologies - the Probability of Direct Air Capture (Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Maryland)

12. October 2021, College Park/ Maryland/ US

"In this talk, Dr. Realff will highlight why DAC is likely to play an important part in achieving negative emissions and why, despite the very dilute concentration of CO2 in air from a separations perspective, it can be successful. In particular, he will highlight the challenges in solid adsorption approaches for DAC and some progress towards successful systems that can achieve metrics that would lead to reasonable cost and energy use for DAC at scale."

Webinar: The Potential of Artificial Ocean Upwelling and Downwelling in CDR (Institute for Carbon Removal Law and Policy)

12. October 2021, online

"This webinar, co-hosted by the Institute for Carbon Removal Law and Policy and the Environmental the Policy & Culture Program at Northwestern University will examine the prospects for two potential ocean-based carbon removal approaches, artificial ocean upwelling and downwelling, to effectuate large-scale sequestration of carbon dioxide."

Event: Nature-Based Solutions: How to Avoid Land Grabbing in the Name of Biodiversity? (Fern)

12. October 2021, Brussels

"Held in advance of the fifteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD COP 15), and the 2021 United Nations climate change conference (COP26), the aim of this event is to highlight civil society's concerns about the specific use of NbS, notably for carbon or biodiversity offsetting. Such measures can have significant negative environmental and social consequences and can even hinder or undermine the global fight against the climate crisis. Many environmental and social concerns need to be addressed when working on NbS: offsetting could enable continued pollution; the availability of large volumes of low-cost carbon credits from NbS projects can dilute the ambition of companies and governments to reduce their own greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions; NbS offsets can be misused for greenwashing, while continuing the status quo; measurement errors could overestimate reduced emissions; land use could prioritise emission reductions/removals (e.g. large-scale, non-native, monoculture plantations), thereby having a negative impact on biodiversity, food and water security and the provision of other ecosystem goods and services, especially for Indigenous Peoples and local communities."
