Styring, Peter; Dowson, George R. M. (2020): Oxygenated Transport Fuels from Carbon Dioxide

Styring, Peter; Dowson, George R. M. (2020): Oxygenated Transport Fuels from Carbon Dioxide. In Johnson Matthey Technology Review. DOI: 10.1595/205651321X16063027322661.

"In this paper we will consider some of the alternative fuels and methods that could reduce cost, both economically and environmentally. We recommend that increased effort in the rapid development of these fuels should be a priority in order to accelerate the possibility of achieving Net Zero without costly infrastructure changes."

Amonette, James E.; et al. (2021): Integrated biochar research: A roadmap

Amonette, James E.; Blanco-Canqui, Humberto; Hassebrook, Chuck; Laird, David A.; Lal, Rattan; Lehmann, Johannes; Page-Dumroese, Deborah (2021): Integrated biochar research: A roadmap. In Journal of Soil and Water Conservation 76 (1), 24A-29A. DOI: 10.2489/jswc.2021.1115A.

"A scientific consensus is building that the drawdown of very large amounts (at least 1,000 Gt [1.1 × 1012 tn]) of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere will be needed to stabilize the earth’s climate system at a safe temperature (Hansen et al. 2008Cao and Caldeira 2010IPCC 20182019)."

Brandl, Patrick; et al. (2021): Beyond 90% capture: Possible, but at what cost?

Brandl, Patrick; Bui, Mai; Hallett, Jason P.; Mac Dowell, Niall (2021): Beyond 90% capture: Possible, but at what cost? In International Journal of Greenhouse Gas Control 105, p. 103239. DOI: 10.1016/j.ijggc.2020.103239.

"This study quantifies the maximum limit of feasible CO2 capture rate for a range of power and industrial sources of CO2, beyond which abatement becomes uneconomical."

World Resources Institute: Direct Air Capture: Resource Considerations and Costs for Carbon Removal

"Direct air capture (DAC) is gaining traction as a promising carbon removal approach that will likely be a necessary part of a larger carbon removal portfolio. Careful consideration of DAC’s energy, land and water use will be needed to inform siting and to minimize resource impacts."

Friedmann, S. Julio; et al. (2020): Net-Zero and Geospheric Return: Actions Today for 2030 and Beyond

Friedmann, S. Julio; Alex Zapantis, Brad Page, Chris Consoli, Zhiyuan Fan, Ian Havercroft, Harry Liu, Emeka Ochu, Nabeela Raji, Dominic Rassool, Hadia Sheerazi and Alex Townsend (2020): Net-Zero and Geospheric Return: Actions Today for 2030 and Beyond. Columbia University’s Centre on Global Energy Policy (CGEP) and the Global CCS Institute.

"In a report co-authored by Columbia University’s Centre on Global Energy Policy (CGEP) and the Global CCS Institute titled ‘Net Zero and Geospheric Return: Actions today for 2030’, findings reveal that climate finance policies and the development of carbon dioxide removal technologies need to grow rapidly within the next 10 years in order to curb climate change and hit net-zero targets."

Energy Voice: Europe could see $35bn in CCS spending till 2035, with UK dominating

"It’s been a long and costly two decades of carbon capture and storage (CCS) studies and test centers. Now Europe has reached a stage where big-scale developments make financial sense and could trigger up to $35 billion in development spending until 2035 – by which time as much as 75 million tonnes of CO2 could be captured and stored per year on the continent, a Rystad Energy analysis shows."
