Maximizing Global Cooling Potential in Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) Procurements: A Proposal for Tonne-Year Pricing

Samuel Wenger, Deanna D’Alessandro and Christopher Wright IN: Frontiers in Climate 4,

In this perspective article, the authors apply tonne-year carbon pricing to Microsoft and Stripe’s initial CDR procurements to demonstrate that a combination of tonne-year pricing and conventional pricing could produce a CDR portfolio that simultaneously prioritizes storage duration, volume, and temporal urgency, which are all important considerations for maximizing GCP (Global Cooling Potential).
