Microsoft: Microsoft will be carbon negative by 2030

"By 2030 Microsoft will be carbon negative, and by 2050 Microsoft will remove from the environment all the carbon the company has emitted either directly or by electrical consumption since it was founded in 1975."

The Conversation: What if storing CO₂ would also allow us to heat our homes?

"The obvious and obligatory solution is to lower our CO2 emissions. This means a drastic reduction in our use of fossil fuels (oil, gas, coal), in parallel with the development of alternative energy sources and vectors (solar, wind, geothermal, biomass, hydroelectricity, hydrogen, etc.)."

Pollution Online: Blue Planet And KDC Announce A Global Partnership To Scale Carbon Negative Concrete Worldwide- Solving One Of The Largest Environmental Problems

"Blue Planet's revolutionary process can create carbon neutral and carbon negative concrete, with the same structural integrity of existing concrete. Additionally, the process enables the world to create a first of its kind closed loop concrete system reducing the need to further destroy the environment and consume new materials."

Boyd, Peter G.; et al. (2019): Data-driven design of metal–organic frameworks for wet flue gas CO 2 capture

Boyd, Peter G.; Chidambaram, Arunraj; García-Díez, Enrique; Ireland, Christopher P.; Daff, Thomas D.; Bounds, Richard et al. (2019): Data-driven design of metal–organic frameworks for wet flue gas CO 2 capture. In Nature 576 (7786), pp. 253–256. DOI: 10.1038/s41586-019-1798-7.

"Here we show that data mining of a computational screening library of over 300,000 MOFs can identify different classes of strong CO2-binding sites—which we term ‘adsorbaphores’—that endow MOFs with CO2/N2 selectivity that persists in wet flue gases."

Podcast: Science Friday: Buying Time In The Climate Crisis

"UCLA researcher Holly Buck is the author of a new book that examines these complexities. She explains to Ira why geoengineering could still be a valid strategy for buying time while we reduce emissions, and why any serious deployment of geoengineering technology would require a re-imagining of society as well."

Fortum: Positive test results from the carbon capture and storage pilot in Oslo

"2019 was an active year for the CCS project at Fortum Oslo Varme’s waste-to-energy plant in Oslo, Norway. The project has established a carbon capture pilot unit and has been conducting a number of tests and delivering reports that are essential to the future decision of support for building a full-scale carbon capture facility at the plant on the outskirts of the capital."

BBN Times: Carbon Capture and Storage

"In my experience, carbon capture and storage (CCS) is often viewed as a quirky technological possibility, not of central significance to the overall issue of reducing the rise of atmospheric carbon. This perception is incorrect."
