Caserini, S.; et al. (2019): Affordable CO2 negative emission through hydrogen from biomass, ocean liming, and CO2 storage

Caserini, S.; Barreto, B.; Lanfredi, C.; Cappello, G.; Ross Morrey, D.; Grosso, M. (2019): Affordable CO2 negative emission through hydrogen from biomass, ocean liming, and CO2 storage. In: Mitig Adapt Strat Glob Change 208 (2), S. 1389. DOI: 10.1007/s11027-018-9835-7.

"A new process to remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere, by combining commercial industrial technologies with ocean liming and CO2 storage, is presented. The process aims to overcome the limiting factors of other negative emission technologies (cost and energy requirements, potential competition for land and freshwater) while simultaneously addressing the problem of ocean acidification."

The Guardian: Katharine Hayhoe: 'A thermometer is not liberal or conservative'

"One solution being discussed is the idea of deliberately geoengineering the planet to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and/or cool the planet. I believe it is important to discuss and study these technologies very thoroughly, because implementing some of them, like solar radiation management [spraying particles into the air to simulate a volcanic eruption and block some of the sunlight reaching Earth], is extremely risky."

van der Spek, M.; et al. (2017): Challenges and uncertainties of ex ante techno-economic analysis of low TRL CO2 capture technology: Lessons from a case study of an NGCC with exhaust gas recycle and electric swing adsorption

van der Spek, M.; Ramirez, A.; Faaij, A. (2017): Challenges and uncertainties of ex ante techno-economic analysis of low TRL CO2 capture technology: Lessons from a case study of an NGCC with exhaust gas recycle and electric swing adsorption. In: Applied Energy 208, S. 920–934. DOI: 10.1016/j.apenergy.2017.09.058.

"The paper shows that for meaningful comparison with incumbent technologies, the performance of very early stage technologies needs to be projected to a future, commercial state. To this end, the state of the art methods have to be adapted to control for the development and improvements that these technologies will undergo during the R&D cycle. We call this a hybrid approach. The paper also shows that CO2 capture technologies always need to be assessed in sympathy with the CO2 source (e.g. power plant) and compression plant, because otherwise unreliable conclusions could be drawn on their feasibility."
