Foundation for Climate Restoration: The 3 Pillars of Climate Restoration

"Carbon dioxide removal has recently received extra buzz thanks to Elon Musk and his $100M competition with XPRIZE to find the best carbon removal technology out there. While the hype is encouraging — anything to drive climate action is paramount — it’s important to understand how carbon dioxide removal stands apart from climate restoration."

Video: Climate Now: Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR)

"In order to reach global net-zero emissions by 2050, we must remove CO2 from the atmosphere as well as prevent further emissions. Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) can be accomplished naturally – through forests, soil sequestration, or mineralization – and technologically. In fact, we will need both CDR methods to get to net-zero.So what technologies exist that remove carbon from the atmosphere? What are their respective costs, how do they compare, and which are already on the market? Watch to find out."

MIT Technology Review: Companies hoping to grow carbon-sucking kelp may be rushing ahead of the science

"In late January, Elon Musk tweeted that he planned to give $100 million to promising carbon removal technologies, stirring the hopes of researchers and entrepreneurs. A few weeks later, Arin Crumley, a filmmaker who went on to develop electric skateboards, announced that a team was forming on Clubhouse, the audio app popular in Silicon Valley, to compete for a share of the Musk-funded XPrize. A group of artists, designers, and engineers assembled there and discussed a variety of possible natural and technical means of sucking carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. As the conversations continued and a core team coalesced, they formed a company, Pull To Refresh, and eventually settled on growing giant bladder kelp in the ocean."

Video: CNBC: Why Bill Gates Is Funding Solar Geoengineering Research

"Fires burning across the Amazon rainforest have renewed the debate about solutions to climate change. Bill Gates is backing the first high-altitude experiment of one radical approach called solar geoengineering. It's meant to mimic the effects of a giant volcanic eruption. Thousands of planes would fly at high altitudes, spraying millions of tons of particles around the planet to create a massive chemical cloud that would cool the surface. [...] The technology is not far from being ready and it's affordable, but it could cause massive changes in regional weather patterns and eradicate blue sky. [...]Watch the video to learn how it would work and hear the debate around the ethics and efficacy of solar geoengineering."

Global Cement: Aalborg Portland Cement to launch carbon capture and storage project at Rørdal cement plant in 2022

"Denmark: Aalborg Portland Cement will begin construction of a carbon capture and storage (CCS) system at its Rørdal, North Jutland, cement plant. It will collaborate with Project Greensand CCS consortium partners to store the captured CO2 in drained oilfields below the North Sea. The company estimates that the Danish part of the North Sea has 16Gt of CO2 storage capacity, out of 300Gt under all EU waters. The endeavour aims to help Denmark to realise its targeted 70% reduction of CO2 emissions by 2030."
