Hepburn, C.; et al. (2019): The Technological and Economic Prospects for CO2 Utilization and Removal
Hepburn, Cameron, Ella Adlen, John Beddington, Emily A. Carter, Sabine Fuss, Niall Mac Dowell, Jan C. Minx, Pete Smith, and Charlotte K. Williams. 2019. “The Technological and Economic Prospects for CO2 Utilization and Removal.” Nature 575 (7781): 87–97. https://doi.org/10.1038/s41586-019-1681-6.
"Here we review ten pathways for the utilization of carbon dioxide. Pathways that involve chemicals, fuels and microalgae might reduce emissions of carbon dioxide but have limited potential for its removal, whereas pathways that involve construction materials can both utilize and remove carbon dioxide. Land-based pathways can increase agricultural output and remove carbon dioxide. Our assessment suggests that each pathway could scale to over 0.5 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide utilization annually."
