Blog: The Future of Carbon Capture: A View of the Current Players

"As per the 2021 IPCC report, it is clear that it is no longer sufficient to simply reduce carbon emissions. In order to tackle climate change, we need to rapidly remove carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. While this seems daunting, hundreds of companies have worked towards various carbon capture and sequestration methods over the last few decades. We have compiled a list of some of these companies with a variety of carbon sequestration technologies."

Burt, Daniel J.; et al. (2021): The Sensitivity of the Marine Carbonate System to Regional Ocean Alkalinity Enhancement

Burt, Daniel J.; Fröb, Friederike; Ilyina, Tatiana (2021): The Sensitivity of the Marine Carbonate System to Regional Ocean Alkalinity Enhancement. In Front. Clim. 3, p. 21. DOI: 10.3389/fclim.2021.624075.

"Ocean Alkalinity Enhancement (OAE) simultaneously mitigates atmospheric concentrations of CO2 and ocean acidification; however, no previous studies have investigated the response of the non-linear marine carbonate system sensitivity to alkalinity enhancement on regional scales. We hypothesise that regional implementations of OAE can sequester more atmospheric CO2 than a global implementation."

Miller, Leonard A.; Orton, Philip M. (2021): Achieving negative emissions through oceanic sequestration of vegetation carbon as Black Pellets

Miller, Leonard A.; Orton, Philip M. (2021): Achieving negative emissions through oceanic sequestration of vegetation carbon as Black Pellets. In Climatic Change 167 (3-4), pp. 1–23. DOI: 10.1007/s10584-021-03170-5.

"If confirmed by research, OSB would be an addition to the sparse toolbox of negative emission technologies (NETs) which would give humankind more flexibility in meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement."

Project: CDRmare

"In order to support pathways that achieve the Paris Agreement goals, the DAM Research Mission »Marine Carbon Sinks in Decarbonization Pathways« will address as to whether and to what extent the ocean can play a substantial role in removing and storing CO2 from the atmosphere. The product will be a Marine Carbon Roadmap for a sustainable utilization of the marine carbon pools on regional to global scales."
