Coffman, D’Maris; Lockley, Andrew (2017): Carbon dioxide removal and the futures market. In: Environ. Res. Lett. 12 (1), S. 15003. DOI: 10.1088/1748-9326/aa54e8.

"We discuss the potential use of futures contracts in Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) markets; concluding that they have one principal advantage (near-term price security to current polluters), and one principal disadvantage (a combination of high price volatility and high trade volume means contracts issued by the private sector may cause systemic economic risk). Accordingly, we note the potential for the development of futures markets in CDR, but urge caution about the prospects for market failure."
