Bellona: Why we need transparency on Carbon Dioxide Removal

"Now is the opportunity for the EU to take leadership in defining what CDR is and how it will contribute to the EU’s climate goals. Failing do so will leave a gap for false solutions and dubious accounting, jeopardising the entirety of EU climate action."

Eugene J. Kim; et al. (2020): Cooperative carbon capture and steam regeneration with tetraamine-appended metal–organic frameworks

Eugene J. Kim; Rebecca L. Siegelman; Henry Z. H. Jiang; Alexander C. Forse; Jung-Hoon Lee; Jeffrey D. Martell et al. (2020): Cooperative carbon capture and steam regeneration with tetraamine-appended metal–organic frameworks. In Science 369 (6502), pp. 392–396. DOI: 10.1126/science.abb3976.

"Taking inspiration from the crystal structures of diamine-appended metal–organic frameworks exhibiting two-step cooperative CO2 adsorption, we report a family of robust tetraamine-functionalized frameworks that retain cooperativity, leading to the potential for exceptional efficiency in capturing CO2 under the extreme conditions relevant to natural gas flue emissions."
