Meckling, Jonas; Biber, Eric (2021): A policy roadmap for negative emissions using direct air capture

Meckling, Jonas; Biber, Eric (2021): A policy roadmap for negative emissions using direct air capture. In Nat Comms 12 (1), pp. 1–6. DOI: 10.1038/s41467-021-22347-1.

"We adopt a policy sequencing perspective that identifies policies that could create niche markets, building political support for later widespread deployment of direct air capture."

Full, Johannes; et al. (2021): A New Perspective for Climate Change Mitigation—Introducing Carbon-Negative Hydrogen Production from Biomass with Carbon Capture and Storage (HyBECCS)

Full, Johannes; Merseburg, Steffen; Miehe, Robert; Sauer, Alexander (2021): A New Perspective for Climate Change Mitigation—Introducing Carbon-Negative Hydrogen Production from Biomass with Carbon Capture and Storage (HyBECCS). In Sustainability 13 (7), p. 4026. DOI: 10.3390/su13074026.

"This paper introduces for the first time a novel concept for the production of hydrogen with net negative emissions. The derived concept combines biohydrogen production using biotechnological or thermochemical processes with carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage."

JIAO, Nianzhi (2021): Developing Ocean Negative Carbon Emission Technology to Support National Carbon Neutralization

JIAO, Nianzhi (2021): Developing Ocean Negative Carbon Emission Technology to Support National Carbon Neutralization. In Bulletin of Chinese Academy of Sciences (Chinese Version) 36 (2), pp. 179–187. DOI: 10.16418/j.issn.1000-3045.20210123001.

"We have established marine carbon sequestration theory, which has laid solid foundation for negative emission and set up the linkage between science and policy. At present, China should take the lead of the international program on the ocean negative carbon emission (ONCE), and put it into practice through top design, timely layout, and development of ONCE technology, and then establish ONCE protocols and standards for carbon trade."

Butenschön, Momme; et al. (2021): Alkalinization Scenarios in the Mediterranean Sea for Efficient Removal of Atmospheric CO2 and the Mitigation of Ocean Acidification

Butenschön, Momme; Lovato, Tomas; Masina, Simona; Caserini, Stefano; Grosso, Mario (2021): Alkalinization Scenarios in the Mediterranean Sea for Efficient Removal of Atmospheric CO2 and the Mitigation of Ocean Acidification. In Front. Clim. 3, p. 14. DOI: 10.3389/fclim.2021.614537.

"This study investigates the case of ocean alkalinization, which has the additional potential of contrasting the ongoing acidification resulting from increased uptake of atmospheric CO2 by the seas. More specifically, we present an analysis of marine alkalinization applied to the Mediterranean Sea taking into consideration the regional characteristics of the basin."

Soimakallio, Sampo; et al. (2021): On the trade-offs and synergies between forest carbon sequestration and substitution

Soimakallio, Sampo; Kalliokoski, Tuomo; Lehtonen, Aleksi; Salminen, Olli (2021): On the trade-offs and synergies between forest carbon sequestration and substitution. In Mitig Adapt Strat Glob Change 26 (1), pp. 1–17. DOI: 10.1007/s11027-021-09942-9.

"Forest biomass can be used in two different ways to limit the growth of the atmospheric greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations: (1) to provide negative emissions through sequestration of carbon into forests and harvested wood products or (2) to avoid GHG emissions through substitution of non-renewable raw materials with wood. We study the trade-offs and synergies between these strategies using three different Finnish national-level forest scenarios between 2015 and 2044 as examples."
