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."

blockchainreporter.: Exclusive: Interview with Paul Gambil, Founder and CEO of Nori

"[...] The Nori carbon removal certificate is a way for people to verifiably remove CO2 and get paid for doing so. Our vision is to create a positive feedback loop of ever growing incentives for more and more people and companies to invest in removing CO2 from the atmosphere. If we make reversing climate change a profitable endeavor, then we’ll actually be able to solve the problem at a grassroots level. No more waiting around for policymakers and voters to make up their minds."

Lu, L.; et al. (2018): Wastewater treatment for carbon capture and utilization

Lu, L.; Guest, J.; Peters, C.; Zhu, X.; Rau, G.; Ren, Z. (2018): Wastewater treatment for carbon capture and utilization. In: Nature Sustainability 1 (12), S. 750–758. DOI: 10.1038/s41893-018-0187-9.

"This Review summarizes alternative wastewater treatment pathways capable of simultaneous CO2 capture and utilization, and demonstrates the environmental and economic benefits of microbial electrochemical and phototrophic processes. Preliminary estimates demonstrate that re-envisioning wastewater treatment may entirely offset the industry’s greenhouse gas footprint and make it a globally significant contributor of negative carbon emissions."
