Request for Proposals: Develop Supporting Technologies for Ocean Alkalinity Enhancement

Deadline for pre-proposals: 11:59 PM PT on July 15, 2022

Additional Ventures is partnering with Ocean Visions and a consortium of philanthropic funders to announce the Ocean Alkalinity Enhancement (OAE) Engineering Award. They invite concise pre-proposals to develop prototypes of new tools, technologies, and processes that could enable safe, cost-efficient, and scalable OAE. Up to $1.5M per team. Informational webinar 6/9/22.


Research Topic on Frontiers: Constraining the potential of land-based Negative Emissions Technologies (NETs) from a data-driven perspective

Submission Deadlines: Abstract – 13 July 2022; Manuscript – 14 September 2022

In this Research Topic of the Frontiers Journal, the editors aim to constrain the weathering rate of rock powders spread on soils in the field by collecting research that focuses on field measurement data over local, regional, or global scales. In addition, secondary CO2 emissions from the ERW supply chain (e.g., mining, grinding, transport, spread) needs to be quantified in order to draw a holistic picture of net lifecycle CDR through ERW. Furthermore, the impact of ERW on the soil and food security needs to be further investigated.


Questionaire: Carbon Market Watch reply to European Commission public consultation on the certification of carbon removals – EU rules

on Carbonmarketwatch.com

„This public consultation invites public administrations, academic institutions, businesses, organisations and individuals to contribute to the preparation of an EU regulatory framework for the certification of carbon removals. The findings of the consultation (which will be summarised and published) will inform the impact assessment accompanying the Commission proposal on this initiative.“


Ocean CDR science recruitment survey (1 minute)

Additional Ventures is a new science funder in the field of ocean-based carbon dioxide removal (CDR). To boost momentum on this topic, the team aims to understand how to recruit the best scientific talent to ocean CDR research. Please take this super-short, checkmark-style survey to help them learn from your experience in this field.

Note, you do not need to be active in ocean CDR research to take the survey. They aim to collect responses from a range of stakeholders, disciplines, and career stages.

Carbon Zero Grand Challenge

Proposal Phase registration and submission deadline: February 24, 2022

The S$6.5 million (approximately US$4.8 million) Carbon Zero Grand Challenge seeks to incentivize innovative solutions that can help PUB (Singapore’s National Water Agency) achieve net-zero emissions by mid-century and scale to water facilities around the globe. PUB is seeking carbon capture, utilization, removal, and other solutions at any technology readiness level that can be integrated with its operations and reach commercial scale within a decade or sooner.
