Jiang, Yuan; et al. (2021): Techno-economic comparison of various process configurations for post-combustion carbon capture using a single-component water-lean solvent

Jiang, Yuan; Mathias, Paul M.; Freeman, Charles J.; Swisher, Joseph A.; Zheng, Richard F.; Whyatt, Greg A.; Heldebrant, David J. (2021): Techno-economic comparison of various process configurations for post-combustion carbon capture using a single-component water-lean solvent. In International Journal of Greenhouse Gas Control 106, p. 103279. DOI: 10.1016/j.ijggc.2021.103279.

"Even though advanced process configurations have been intensively studied for aqueous amines, few discussions can be found in the open literature for water-lean solvents. In order to fill the gap, the present study focuses on the process designs towards lower carbon capture cost enabled by water-lean solvents."

Phys.org: Cheaper carbon capture is on the way

"As part of a marathon research effort to lower the cost of carbon capture, chemists have now demonstrated a method to seize carbon dioxide (CO2) that reduces costs by 19 percent compared to current commercial technology."

Medium: Addressing Climate Change through Soil Carbon: What is needed to align incentives?

"Much has been written about the potential disruptions, yet there is also an opportunity to act now to mitigate these disasters. Soil carbon’s role in this is nothing new, but the potential for the earth’s soil to sequester 100–150 billion tons of carbon from the atmosphere cannot be ignored(*1)."

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."
