Belmonte, Beatriz A.; et al. (2021): A fuzzy optimization model for planning integrated terrestrial carbon management networks

Belmonte, Beatriz A.; Aviso, Kathleen B.; Benjamin, Michael Francis D.; Tan, Raymond R. (2021): A fuzzy optimization model for planning integrated terrestrial carbon management networks. In Clean Techn Environ Policy, pp. 1–13. DOI: 10.1007/s10098-021-02119-7.

"Although recent papers have reported the development of process integration models for optimizing carbon management networks based on either biochar application or enhanced weathering, none have reported models integrating these two NETs in the same system. To address this gap, a fuzzy mixed-integer linear programming model is developed that integrates biochar application and enhanced weathering for large-scale carbon sequestration."

Tan, Raymond R.; et al. (2021): Pinch-based planning of terrestrial carbon management networks

Tan, Raymond R.; Aviso, Kathleen B.; Bandyopadhyay, Santanu (2021): Pinch-based planning of terrestrial carbon management networks. In Cleaner Engineering and Technology 4, p. 100141. DOI: 10.1016/j.clet.2021.100141.

"In this work, a pinch analysis approach for the planning of CMNs based on either enhanced weathering or biochar application is developed."

Fuhrman, Jay; et al. (2021): The role of negative emissions in meeting China’s 2060 carbon neutrality goal

Fuhrman, Jay; Clarens, Andres F.; McJeon, Haewon; Patel, Pralit; Ou, Yang; Doney, Scott C. et al. (2021): The role of negative emissions in meeting China’s 2060 carbon neutrality goal. In Oxford Open Climate Change 1 (1). DOI: 10.1093/oxfclm/kgab004.

"We use the Global Change Analysis Model to simulate how negative emissions technologies, in general, and direct air capture (DAC) in particular, could contribute to China’s meeting this target."

Palmer, James; Carton, Wim (2021): Carbon Removal as Carbon Revival? Bioenergy, Negative Emissions, and the Politics of Alternative Energy Futures

Palmer, James; Carton, Wim (2021): Carbon Removal as Carbon Revival? Bioenergy, Negative Emissions, and the Politics of Alternative Energy Futures. In Front. Clim. 3, p. 60. DOI: 10.3389/fclim.2021.678031.

"This Perspective therefore calls for governance frameworks for carbon dioxide removal to adjudicate between conflicting approaches to achieving negative emissions not only on the basis of technical efficiency, or even ‘on-the-ground’ social and environmental impacts, but also according to compatibility with socially legitimate visions and understandings of what energy – and more specifically energy use – should ultimately be for in the post-fossil fuel era."

Job: Postdoctoral Associate (Stony Brook University)

Deadline: 19. June 2021

"Seeking a postdoc familiar with the marine carbonate system for an interdisciplinary project in the emerging field of ocean carbon dioxide removal (ocean CDR) and negative emissions technologies (NETs) that aims to mitigate ocean acidification while decreasing the atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration. The postdoc will help evaluate an electrochemical process that enables local adjustment and control of seawater carbonate chemistry."

Lenzi, Dominic (2021): On the Permissibility (Or Otherwise) of Negative Emissions

Lenzi, Dominic (2021): On the Permissibility (Or Otherwise) of Negative Emissions. In Ethics, Policy & Environment, pp. 1–14. DOI: 10.1080/21550085.2021.1885249.

"While NETs are not risk-free, I argue that they could be part of minimally just responses to climate change. In doing so, I identify a dilemma between limiting warming to 1.5 ° C, which promises lower climate impacts but implies greater NETs risks, and 2°C, which requires less NETs but promises greater climate impacts. Finally, I consider what the case of NETs reveals about permissibility in the face of non-compliance with principles of climate justice."

Beal, Colin M.; King, Carey W. (2021): The zero-emissions cost of energy: a policy concept

Beal, Colin M.; King, Carey W. (2021): The zero-emissions cost of energy: a policy concept. In Prog. Energy. DOI: 10.1088/2516-1083/abef1f.

"We present a new carbon tax policy concept in which energy users would be taxed an amount equal to the cost of cleaning up the emissions that they create, wherein the tax revenues would be used to operate negative emissions technologies."

Sovacool, Benjamin K. (2021): Reckless or righteous? Reviewing the sociotechnical benefits and risks of climate change geoengineering

Sovacool, Benjamin K. (2021): Reckless or righteous? Reviewing the sociotechnical benefits and risks of climate change geoengineering. In Energy Strategy Reviews 35, p. 100656. DOI: 10.1016/j.esr.2021.100656.

"[T]his study reviews and summarizes a large number of geoengineering assessments published over the past decade to document prospective benefits, but also reveal potential risks. It aims to provide a comprehensive evidence base on GGR and SRM technologies that is rigorous, timely, and interdisciplinary."

Ming, Tingzhen; et al. (2021): A nature-based negative emissions technology able to remove atmospheric methane and other greenhouse gases

Ming, Tingzhen; Richter, Renaud de; Dietrich Oeste, Franz; Tulip, Robert; Caillol, Sylvain (2021): A nature-based negative emissions technology able to remove atmospheric methane and other greenhouse gases. In Atmospheric Pollution Research. DOI: 10.1016/j.apr.2021.02.017.

"As some anthropogenic emissions cannot be zero, to compensate them it will be necessary to remove GHGs from the atmosphere. Among possible methods, the Iron Salt Aerosol (ISA) offers new possibilities, including removal of methane and several other GHGs, as well as carbon dioxide."
