Call for Submissions: SBRI Greenhouse Gas Removals Innovation Competition - Phase 1 [Design Study]

Deadline: 05. February 2021

"The GGR Technologies Innovation Competition is to support the development of innovative greenhouse gas removals technologies. It is to support the development of technologies that are not yet commercial rather than supporting technologies that are already mature. Therefore, the technologies to be developed must be at a technology readiness level (TRL) between 4 and 7 at the start of the project. The ultimate objective is to trial the technologies at pilot scale."

Rosa, Lorenzo; et al. (2020): The water footprint of carbon capture and storage technologies

Rosa, Lorenzo; Sanchez, Daniel L.; Realmonte, Giulia; Baldocchi, Dennis; D'Odorico, Paolo (2020): The water footprint of carbon capture and storage technologies. In Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, p. 110511. DOI: 10.1016/j.rser.2020.110511.

"This study presents the water footprints (m3 water per tonne CO2 captured) of four prominent CCS technologies: Post-combustion CCS, Pre-combustion CCS, Direct Air CCS, and Bioenergy with CCS. Depending on technology, the water footprint of CCS ranges from 0.74 to 575 m3 H2O/tonne CO2."

Malhotra, Abhishek; Schmidt, Tobias S. (2020): Accelerating Low-Carbon Innovation

Malhotra, Abhishek; Schmidt, Tobias S. (2020): Accelerating Low-Carbon Innovation. In Joule 0 (0). DOI: 10.1016/j.joule.2020.09.004.

"Accelerating innovation in low-carbon technologies is fundamental in order to achieve global climate targets. However, only few technologies are currently on track to meet these targets. Here, we review and synthesize the innovation literature to develop a technology typology that helps explain systematic differences in technologies’ experience rates."
