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."

McAfee, Kathleen (2021): Shall the American Association of Geographers Endorse Carbon Offsets? Absolutely Not!

McAfee, Kathleen (2021): Shall the American Association of Geographers Endorse Carbon Offsets? Absolutely Not! In The Professional Geographer, pp. 1–7. DOI: 10.1080/00330124.2021.1934879.

"The American Association of Geographers should not contribute to this illusion by endorsing offsetting. Instead we should take steps to reduce our own emissions and speak out clearly when our work has bearing on policy decisions and public perceptions about the climate crisis."

Trove Research (2021): Future Demand, Supply and Prices for Voluntary Carbon Credits – Keeping the Balance

Trove Research (2021): Future Demand, Supply and Prices for Voluntary Carbon Credits – Keeping the Balance.

"This land-mark study, conducted in collaboration with UCL, produces the first analysis of the long term demand, supply and prices of carbon credits (carbon offsets) in the Voluntary Carbon Market.  The analysis models future demand for carbon credits from over 5000 companies using a range of forecasting approaches.  Future carbon credit supply uses satellite imagery, together with detailed spatial and economic modelling, to project the future costs of meeting this demand.  The analysis concludes that considerably higher prices are needed to incentivise a large-scale change in land-use away from agriculture towards preserving and restoring forests, and to invest in capturing and storing CO2 in the atmosphere."
