Duan, Hongbo; et al. (2021): Assessing China's efforts to pursue the 1.5°C warming limit

Duan, Hongbo; Zhou, Sheng; Jiang, Kejun; Bertram, Christoph; Harmsen, Mathijs; Kriegler, Elmar et al. (2021): Assessing China's efforts to pursue the 1.5°C warming limit. In Science (New York, N.Y.) 372 (6540), pp. 378–385. DOI: 10.1126/science.aba8767.

"By conducting a multimodel study, we find that the 1.5°C-consistent goal would require China to reduce its carbon emissions and energy consumption by more than 90 and 39%, respectively, compared with the “no policy” case."

JIAO, Nianzhi (2021): Developing Ocean Negative Carbon Emission Technology to Support National Carbon Neutralization

JIAO, Nianzhi (2021): Developing Ocean Negative Carbon Emission Technology to Support National Carbon Neutralization. In Bulletin of Chinese Academy of Sciences (Chinese Version) 36 (2), pp. 179–187. DOI: 10.16418/j.issn.1000-3045.20210123001.

"We have established marine carbon sequestration theory, which has laid solid foundation for negative emission and set up the linkage between science and policy. At present, China should take the lead of the international program on the ocean negative carbon emission (ONCE), and put it into practice through top design, timely layout, and development of ONCE technology, and then establish ONCE protocols and standards for carbon trade."

Zhou, Hewen; et al. (2021): Prospective contributions of biomass pyrolysis to China’s 2050 carbon reduction and renewable energy goals

Zhou, Hewen; Bartocci, Pietro; Fantozzi, Francesco; Mašek, Ondřej; Agblevor, Foster; Wei, Zhiyu et al. (2021): Prospective contributions of biomass pyrolysis to China’s 2050 carbon reduction and renewable energy goals. In nature communications.

"While bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) may need years to mature, this study focuses on developing a ready-to-implement biomass intermediate pyrolysis poly-generation (BIPP) technology to produce a potentially stable form of biochar, a medium for carbon storage, and to provide a significant source of valuable biofuels, especially pyrolysis gas."
