Santos, Mónica P.S.; et al. (2021): Unlocking the potential of pulp and paper industry to achieve carbon-negative emissions via calcium looping retrofit

Santos, Mónica P.S.; Manovic, Vasilije; Hanak, Dawid P. (2021): Unlocking the potential of pulp and paper industry to achieve carbon-negative emissions via calcium looping retrofit. In Journal of Cleaner Production 280, p. 124431. DOI: 10.1016/j.jclepro.2020.124431.

"This study proposes a new concept for conversion of the pulp and paper industry to carbon negative that relies on the inherent CO2 capture capability of the Kraft process."

Horton, Peter; et al. (2021): Technologies to deliver food and climate security through agriculture

Horton, Peter; Long, Stephen P.; Smith, Pete; Banwart, Steven A.; Beerling, David J. (2021): Technologies to deliver food and climate security through agriculture. In Nature Plants 7 (3), pp. 250–255. DOI: 10.1038/s41477-021-00877-2.

"Here, we discuss a series of technological options to bring about change in agriculture for delivering food security and providing multiple routes to the removal of CO2 from the atmosphere. These technologies include the use of silicate amendment of soils to sequester atmospheric CO2, agronomy technologies to increase soil organic carbon, and high-yielding resource-efficient crops to deliver increased agricultural yield, thus freeing land that is less suited for intensive cropping for land use practices that will further increase carbon storage."

grist: A Midwest pipeline promises to return carbon dioxide to the ground

"Summit Carbon Solutions, a spinoff of an Iowa-based agricultural company, recently announced it is developing a $2 billion pipeline project that will carry carbon dioxide captured from ethanol refineries scattered across the Midwest to a site in North Dakota where it will be pumped thousands of feet underground."

Tech Crunch: https://news.yale.edu/2021/03/03/yale-new-fedex-supported-center-focus-climate-change-solutions

"The Swiss-based, venture capital-backed, direct air capture technology developer Climeworks is partnering with a joint venture between the government of Norway and massive European energy companies to map the pathway for a business that could provide not only the direct capture of carbon dioxide emissions from air, but the underground sequestration and storage of those emissions."

Jiang, Yuan; et al. (2021): Techno-economic comparison of various process configurations for post-combustion carbon capture using a single-component water-lean solvent

Jiang, Yuan; Mathias, Paul M.; Freeman, Charles J.; Swisher, Joseph A.; Zheng, Richard F.; Whyatt, Greg A.; Heldebrant, David J. (2021): Techno-economic comparison of various process configurations for post-combustion carbon capture using a single-component water-lean solvent. In International Journal of Greenhouse Gas Control 106, p. 103279. DOI: 10.1016/j.ijggc.2021.103279.

"Even though advanced process configurations have been intensively studied for aqueous amines, few discussions can be found in the open literature for water-lean solvents. In order to fill the gap, the present study focuses on the process designs towards lower carbon capture cost enabled by water-lean solvents."

Capitol Weekly: CA tech crucial in reaching national greenhouse gas goals

"President Biden campaigned on a goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. But this goal will not be achievable without deploying technologies and practices that can pull greenhouse gases from the atmosphere – or from smokestacks of industrial facilities that have few viable alternatives – and securely store it underground or use it in long-lived products like concrete."
