Funding novel research towards atmospheric CO2 removal

Tue, 28 February 2023, 16:00 – 17:00 GMT; by Carbon Technology Research Foundation (CTRF)

CTRF’s inaugural call for research proposals will be launched by the Director of Research, Dr Sarah Wagstaffe-Jones. In 2023, they will be offering up to £4M in anticipation of funding 4-7 projects. During the session, CTRF’s initial priority areas for funding will be communicated and guidance on the application and peer review processes which will be adopted by CTRF will be provided. This webinar will be of particular interest to researchers working within the CDR space, or those wishing to pivot their innovative programmes and methodologies towards the sector. We would also encourage policymakers, funders and investors to join in the discussion.


IEAGHG 15th International Interdisciplinary CCS Summer School

9-15 July 2023, hosted by International CCS Knowledge Centre, Regina, Canada 

Application deadline: 1st March

The target group for the Summer School is young scientists and researchers, e.g. PhD students with a background in engineering, geo-technologies, socio-economics. This can also include those in the early stages of their career within 5 years of graduation currently seeking a greater understanding of CCS. The Summer School programme covers every aspect of CCS and aims to present the most recent information available in each field, up to 50 students will attend.

Scrubbing the Skies: Wood Harvesting and Storage with Wood Vault for Durable Carbon Sequestration: Scientific Needs and Societal Impacts

Thu, February 9, 2023, 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EST; hosted by Institute for Carbon Removal Law and Policy

Wood Harvesting and Storage (WHS) is a novel hybrid Nature-engineering method for carbon dioxide removal (CDR) and semi-permanent sequestration. In this method, sustainably sourced woody biomass is buried in Wood Vault, an engineering structure designed to maintain anaerobic conditions to prevent wood decomposition. Participants will discuss the carbon sequestration potential of this approach, as well as critical questions related to monitoring and verification, and the challenges of full-carbon accounting.


Webinar on ocean-based CDR with CDRmare

Tuesday, February 7, 2023, 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.; hosted by Swiss Carbon Removal Platform

In this CDR Swiss webinar, Prof. Dr. Gregor Rehder and Prof. Dr. Achim Kopf from the German research mission „CDRmare“ will present marine Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) methods, including carbon storage in the oceanic crust (basalt formations) and in geological formations of the German North Sea (sand stone formations).
