Amelse, Jeffrey; K. Behrens, Paul (2021): Sequestering Biomass for Natural, Efficient, and Low-Cost Direct Air Capture of Carbon Dioxide

Amelse, Jeffrey; K. Behrens, Paul (2021): Sequestering Biomass for Natural, Efficient, and Low-Cost Direct Air Capture of Carbon Dioxide. In SSRN Journal.

"The only way to permanently remove CO2 already in the atmosphere is to break the Carbon Cycle by growing biomass from atmospheric CO2 and permanently sequestering that biomass carbon."

Mongin, Mathieu; et al. (2021): Reversing ocean acidification along the Great Barrier Reef using alkalinity injection

Mongin, Mathieu; Baird, Mark E.; Lenton, Andrew; Neill, Craig; Akl, John (2021): Reversing ocean acidification along the Great Barrier Reef using alkalinity injection. In Environ. Res. Lett. 16 (6), p. 64068. DOI: 10.1088/1748-9326/ac002d.

"In this study, we use a coupled hydrodynamic-biogeochemical model of the GBR and surrounding ocean to simulate artificial ocean alkalinisation (AOA) as a means to reverse the impact of global ocean acidification on GBR reefs."

Grant, Neil; et al. (2021): Confronting mitigation deterrence in low-carbon scenarios

Grant, Neil; Hawkes, Adam; Mittal, Shivika; Gambhir, Ajay (2021): Confronting mitigation deterrence in low-carbon scenarios. In Environ. Res. Lett. DOI: 10.1088/1748-9326/ac0749.

"Here we conduct an in-depth analysis into the relationship between emissions reduction and emissions removal in a global integrated assessment model. We explore the impact of CDR on low-carbon scenarios, illustrating how the pathway for the 2020s is highly sensitive to assumptions around CDR availability."

Rickels, Wilfried; et al. (2021): Integrating Carbon Dioxide Removal into European Emissions Trading

Rickels, Wilfried; Proelss, Alexander; Geden, Oliver; Burhenne, Julian; Fridahl, Mathias (2021): Integrating Carbon Dioxide Removal into European Emissions Trading. In Front. Clim. 3, p. 62. DOI: 10.3389/fclim.2021.690023.

"Here, we conceptually discuss various economic, legal, and political challenges surrounding the integration of CRCs into the EU ETS. To analyze cap-and-trade systems encompassing negative emissions, we introduce the effective (elastic) cap resulting from the integration of CRCs in addition to the regulatory (inelastic) cap, the latter now being binding for the net emissions only."

Ozkan, Mihrimah (2021): Direct air capture of CO2: A response to meet the global climate targets

Ozkan, Mihrimah (2021): Direct air capture of CO2: A response to meet the global climate targets. In MRS Energy & Sustainability, pp. 1–6. DOI: 10.1557/s43581-021-00005-9.

"While large-scale deployment of DAC discussions continues, a closer look to the capital and operational costs, different capture technologies, the choice of energy source, land and water requirements, and other environmental impacts of DAC are reviewed and examined. Cost per ton of CO2 captured discussions of leading industrial DAC developers with their carbon capture technologies are presented, and their detailed cost comparisons are evaluated based on the choice of energy operation together with process energy requirements."
