Blocka, M.; et al. (2019): A new chapterShifting Poland towards net-zero economy

Blocka, M.; Sniegocki, A.; Porebna, K.; Wetmanska, Z.; Bukowski, M. (ed.) (2019): A new chapterShifting Poland towards net-zero economy. Online: http://wise-europa.eu/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/New_chapter_Poland_net-zero-1.pdf.

"This report aims to demonstrate that without a bold new vision of changes in all key sectors of the economy, Poland will spend the decades to come among Euope's climate laggards, incurring the associated costs and losing subsequent development opportunities in the emerging low-carbon goods and services markets."

ScienceDaily: Carbon dioxide sequestration accompanied by bioenergy generation using a bubbling-type photosynthetic algae microbial fuel cell

"Researchers have proposed a design solution that could bring artificial leaves out of the lab and into the environment. Their improved leaf, which would use carbon dioxide -- a potent greenhouse gas -- from the air, would be at least 10 times more efficient than natural leaves at converting carbon dioxide to fuel."

Project Syndicate: Geoengineering is a Dangerous Distraction

"A growing number of people are now considering the once-unthinkable strategy of geoengineering our way out of the climate crisis. Proposed approaches vary widely, but all share a few key features: they are technologically uncertain, environmentally risky, and more likely to accelerate the climate crisis than to reverse it."

National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (2019): Gaseous Carbon Waste Streams Utilization

National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (2019): Gaseous Carbon Waste Streams Utilization. Washington, D.C.: National Academies Press.

"In the quest to mitigate the buildup of greenhouse gases in Earth’s atmosphere, researchers and policymakers have increasingly turned their attention to techniques for capturing greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane, either from the locations where they are emitted or directly from the atmosphere. Once captured, these gases can be stored or put to use. While both carbon storage and carbon utilization have costs, utilization offers the opportunity to recover some of the cost and even generate economic value."
