Full, Johannes; et al. (2021): A New Perspective for Climate Change Mitigation—Introducing Carbon-Negative Hydrogen Production from Biomass with Carbon Capture and Storage (HyBECCS)

Full, Johannes; Merseburg, Steffen; Miehe, Robert; Sauer, Alexander (2021): A New Perspective for Climate Change Mitigation—Introducing Carbon-Negative Hydrogen Production from Biomass with Carbon Capture and Storage (HyBECCS). In Sustainability 13 (7), p. 4026. DOI: 10.3390/su13074026.

"This paper introduces for the first time a novel concept for the production of hydrogen with net negative emissions. The derived concept combines biohydrogen production using biotechnological or thermochemical processes with carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage."

Zarnetske, Phoebe L.; et al. (2021): Potential ecological impacts of climate intervention by reflecting sunlight to cool Earth

Zarnetske, Phoebe L.; Gurevitch, Jessica; Franklin, Janet; Groffman, Peter M.; Harrison, Cheryl S.; Hellmann, Jessica J. et al. (2021): Potential ecological impacts of climate intervention by reflecting sunlight to cool Earth. In PNAS 118 (15), e1921854118. DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1921854118.

"We focus here on stratospheric aerosol intervention (SAI), a well-studied and relatively feasible SRM scheme that is likely to have a large impact on Earth’s surface temperature. We outline current gaps in knowledge about both helpful and harmful predicted effects of SAI on ecological systems."
