Plazzotta, Maxime; et al. (2019): Impact of Solar Radiation Modification on Allowable CO 2 Emissions: What Can We Learn From Multimodel Simulations?

Plazzotta, Maxime; Séférian, Roland; Douville, Hervé (2019): Impact of Solar Radiation Modification on Allowable CO 2 Emissions: What Can We Learn From Multimodel Simulations? In Earth’s Future 7 (6), pp. 664–676. DOI: 10.1029/2019EF001165.

"Here we use the results of six Earth system models simulating a continuous stratospheric injection of 5 Tg of sulfur dioxide per year between 2020 and 2069 under the representative concentration pathways 4.5 to investigate the impact of SRM on land and ocean carbon uptake."

Izikowitz, David (2021): Carbon Purchase Agreements, Dactories, and Supply-Chain Innovation: What Will It Take to Scale-Up Modular Direct Air Capture Technology to a Gigatonne Scale

Izikowitz, David (2021): Carbon Purchase Agreements, Dactories, and Supply-Chain Innovation: What Will It Take to Scale-Up Modular Direct Air Capture Technology to a Gigatonne Scale. In Front. Clim. 3. DOI: 10.3389/fclim.2021.636657.

"In particular, we look at approaches to drive demand and scale-up DAC module production, and opportunities presented in the development of an integrated DAC manufacturing industry."

Fajardy, Mathilde; et al. (2021): The economics of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) deployment in a 1.5 °C or 2 °C world

Fajardy, Mathilde; Morris, Jennifer; Gurgel, Angelo; Herzog, Howard; Mac Dowell, Niall; Paltsev, Sergey (2021): The economics of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) deployment in a 1.5 °C or 2 °C world. In Global Environmental Change 68, p. 102262. DOI: 10.1016/j.gloenvcha.2021.102262.

"Here we focus on quantifying the potential scale of BECCS and its impact on the economy, taking into account technology and economic considerations, but excluding sustainability and political aspects."

Rosa, Lorenzo; et al. (2021): Assessment of carbon dioxide removal potential via BECCS in a carbon-neutral Europe

Rosa, Lorenzo; Sanchez, Daniel L.; Mazzotti, Marco (2021): Assessment of carbon dioxide removal potential via BECCS in a carbon-neutral Europe. In Energy & Environmental Science. DOI: 10.1039/D1EE00642H.

"In order to assess the European BECCS potential, we quantify at 1 km resolution the technical potential for biogenic CDR considering seven different BECCS configurations that do not require purpose-grown bio-energy plantations."

Strefler, Jessica; et al. (2021): Alternative carbon price trajectories can avoid excessive carbon removal

Strefler, Jessica; Kriegler, Elmar; Bauer, Nico; Luderer, Gunnar; Pietzcker, Robert C.; Giannousakis, Anastasis; Edenhofer, Ottmar (2021): Alternative carbon price trajectories can avoid excessive carbon removal. In Nat Comms 12 (1), p. 2264. DOI: 10.1038/s41467-021-22211-2.

"We show how the optimal carbon price path for remaining well below 2 °C limits CDR demand and analyze requirements for constructing alternatives, which may be easier to implement in reality. We show that warming can be held at well below 2 °C at much lower long-term economic effort and lower CDR deployment and therefore lower risks if carbon prices are high enough in the beginning to ensure target compliance, but increase at a lower rate after carbon neutrality has been reached."

van Soest, Heleen L.; et al. (2021): Net-zero emission targets for major emitting countries consistent with the Paris Agreement

van Soest, Heleen L.; Elzen, Michel G. J. den; van Vuuren, Detlef P. (2021): Net-zero emission targets for major emitting countries consistent with the Paris Agreement. In Nat Comms 12 (1), p. 2140. DOI: 10.1038/s41467-021-22294-x.

"Here, we look at national-level neutrality-years based on globally cost-effective 1.5 °C and 2 °C scenarios from integrated assessment models. These results indicate that domestic net zero greenhouse gas and CO2 emissions in Brazil and the USA are reached a decade earlier than the global average, and in India and Indonesia later than global average."

Lee, Walker Raymond; et al. (2021): High‐latitude stratospheric aerosol geoengineering can be more effective if injection is limited to spring

Lee, Walker Raymond; MacMartin, Douglas G.; Visioni, Daniele; Kravitz, Ben (2021): High‐latitude stratospheric aerosol geoengineering can be more effective if injection is limited to spring. In Geophysical Research Letters. DOI: 10.1029/2021GL092696.

"We demonstrate that spring injection produces approximately twice as much summer AOD as year‐round injection and restores approximately twice as much September sea ice, resulting in less increase in stratospheric sulfur burden, stratospheric heating, and stratospheric ozone depletion per unit of sea ice restored. We also find that differences in AOD between different seasonal injection strategies are small compared to the difference between annual and spring injection."

Wang, Yushan; et al. (2021): Carbon Dioxide Capture by Non-aqueous Blend in Rotating Packed Bed Reactor: Absorption and Desorption Investigation

Wang, Yushan; Dong, Yuning; Zhang, Liangliang; Chu, Guangwen; Zou, Haikui; Sun, Baochang; Zeng, Xiaofei (2021): Carbon Dioxide Capture by Non-aqueous Blend in Rotating Packed Bed Reactor: Absorption and Desorption Investigation. In Separation and Purification Technology, p. 118714. DOI: 10.1016/j.seppur.2021.118714.

"In this work, 2-amino-2-methyl-1-propanol (AMP), 2-(2-aminoethylamino)ethanol (AEEA), N-methyl pyrrolidone (NMP) tri-solvent blend is used as a novel non-aqueous absorbent for CO2 capture process in rotating packed bed (RPB) reactor, which is employed to intensify the mass transfer in both absorption and desorption process."
