Carbon to Value Initiative Year 3 Final Showcase

November 30; 5:30 – 8 pm EST

With this event the culmination of the third year of the Carbon to Value (C2V) Initiative will be celebrated! Hear from the 8 Year 3 Cohort startups shaping the future of the carbontech industry as they each present their solutions, the progress they’ve made throughout the past six months of the C2V program, and where they are headed next.


Webinar: MRV for Ocean-Based CDR: Spotlight on CDR Suppliers

Thursday, November 30, 7 – 8pm CET

Join Ocean Visions for the second webinar in their series on current innovations in measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) for ocean-based carbon dioxide removal (CDR). They will spotlight leading startups doing electrochemical CDR to get a deeper understanding of the current state of MRV science, how it’s being applied, and the challenges and solutions advancing this important field. Talks by CDR scientists Erika La Plante, PhD (Equatic) and Sophie Chu, PhD (Captura) will be followed by a moderated audience Q&A.


Webinar: Scrubbing the Skies – Quantifying Biochar CDR Global and Country-Level Impact: Lessons for Climate Change Policy and Action Plans

November 21; 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm ET, hosted by Institute for Carbon Removal Law and Policy

This webinar will focus upon a newly published paper that quantifies, for the first time, biochar production’s carbon removal potential at ~6% per year on a global scale, the equivalent of India’s annual emissions or removing 803 coal power plants. The paper’s framework also quantifies the potential contribution biochar can Wil Burns, Co-Director, ICRLP


Conference: Biochar 2024

February 12-15, 2024; in Sacramento, California, USA; in-person

The US Biochar Initiative (USBI) will host Biochar 2024: The North American conference on Climate Action with Biochar for Economic and Ecosystem Resilience.  The conference will address emerging policies and strategies for scaling biochar to tackle climate change impacts, build resiliency, and generate economic opportunities. The conference seeks to highlight applied research, real-world case studies, and action plans utilizing biochar to achieve these goals. You are welcome to present your latest products, technologies or developments.


Science Communication Training on Ocean Carbon Dioxide Removal

Session 1: February 1-2, 2024, 1-4 pm ET; Session 2: February 18, 9 am-5 pm CT

Session 1: Virtual; Session 2: New Orleans, LA (in conjunction with the 2024 Ocean Sciences Meeting)

COMPASS announced a two-part workshop series in conjunction with the 2024 Ocean Sciences Meeting, held in New Orleans in February 2024. Designed for physical and social scientists and technical experts working in the ocean carbon dioxide removal (oCDR) space, these workshops will help participants share their work and insights on ocean carbon dioxide removal in clear, relevant terms. Grounded in the latest research on science communication, COMPASS workshops are designed to help participants find the relevance of their science for the audiences they most want to reach—journalists, policymakers, the public, and even other scientists. In this two-part workshop series, participants will have the opportunity to engage with top-notch science journalists who will share insights on how scientists can become excellent communicators and provide 1:1 feedback on participants’ communication messages.


The Delivery of C2G’s Mission: A catalytic journey toward governance of large-scale CDR and SRM – perspectives from stakeholders

October 30, 2023, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT, hosted by Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative (C2G), hybrid

C2G’s purpose is to bring to governments’ attention the urgent need to address the governance of emerging climate-altering techniques, including carbon dioxide removal (CDR) and solar radiation modification (SRM). Following completion of its mission, C2G will close-down at the end of 2023. As part of our final activities, C2G is planning a hybrid event on 30 October to celebrate C2G’s 7 years of achievement and share lessons learned looking back at major challenges, advancements and milestones related to the governance of CDR and SRM, as well as to provide an opportunity to look ahead to all that has yet to be accomplished. 


Webinar: Scrubbing the Skies – Potential Role of BBNJ Treaty in Ocean-Based CDR

November 7th, 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm CEThosted by Institute for Carbon Removal Law and Policy

In September of this year, the Biodiversity Beyond National Jurisdiction (BBNJ) treaty under the United Nations Convention for the Law of the Sea was opened for signature. The treaty is slated to enter into force after sixty nations ratify it. Given the fact that many ocean-based carbon dioxide removal approaches will either be deployed in the open oceans, or could have impacts in these areas, the BBNJ may prove to a key regulatory framework for the emerging industry. In this webinar, two researchers focused on the interface of the BBNJ and ocean CDR will join Simon Nicholson, Co-Chair of the Institute for Carbon Removal Law & Policy, in a roundtable discussion of the BBNJ’s potential future role in regulating ocean CDR approaches, as well how the BBNJ will interface with other pertinent ocean regimes.


Seminar and networking in Brussels for permanent removals: How can BECCS contribute to your net-zero target?

7th of November; 3 p.m – 5 p.m; Stockholm Region EU Office or online

This seminar will highlight the emerging market demand for carbon removal units, discuss how permanent removals can support the achievement of net-zero targets, increase your knowledge of BECCS and place the technology in a larger European context. Meet company leaders, politicians, NGO:s and researchers who will discuss the latest in this fast-moving field. After the seminar you are invited to mingle with the participants.

Keynote speakers: Dr. Oliver Geden, Head of Research Cluster Climate Policy and Politics, German Institute for International and Security Affairs (SWP). Vice-Chair, Working Group III Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC); Dr. Piera Patrizio, Head of Research, Science Based Targets initiativ; Dr. Fabian Levihn, Head of R&D Stockholm Exergi, Docent (reader) at the Royal Intitute of Technology, EU DG Clima expert on carbon removals


Media Briefing On Carbon Removals At COP28

October 24 from 10 AM – 10:45 AM ET

Carbon Removals at COP – a collaborative effort of volunteers operating in the carbon removal space, is organizing a media briefing titled COP28 Advance Briefing on Global Carbon Removal Deployment & How Removals Will Surface in The International Negotiations.  The event will aim to cover the grounds on the state of the carbon removals market, where and how carbon removal is being deployed in the Global South, and how carbon removal will surface in the COP28 negotiations. It will also include Q&A from reporters. Registration is required.
