Webinar: The value of Research, Development & Demonstration in the Commercial Deployment of CCS

Wed, Jun 7, 2023 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM CEST by IEAGHG

The aim of the webinar is to describe some of the R&D conducted and its value to commercial deployment of CCS. SINTEFF, TERC and TNO will inform the wider CCS community on how their CCS research activities give value to large-scale trials and ultimately translates to commercial deployment of CCS projects around the world. Practical examples of some of the studies conducted and their impact on large scale CCS projects will be described.


Climeworks Direct Air Capture Summit 2023

June 6, 2023, 08 am -7 pm CET, by climeworks, hybrid: in Zurich, Switzerland and online

Since 2020, Climeworks Direct Air Capture Summit has been a unique platform that brings together the carbon removal industry’s key players. Featuring technology, business, climate science and policy experts, our full-day event aims to spark insightful discussions and inspire new partnerships to fulfil the potential of direct air capture and carbon removal in the fight against global warming. Inspire, connect, act – these are the core pillars of the Direct Air Capture Summit and through which we want to drive meaningful progress in the scale up of the carbon removal industry.


Carbon Capture Summit 2023

26 – 27 June, 2023, Holiday Inn Arena Towers, Amsterdam, Netherlands

Industry leaders will meet to explore next-generation technologies for carbon capture, utilisation, storage, and transportation. The key focus for this year’s Carbon Capture Summit 2023 will be “Working in collaboration with the industry” by sharing expertise, building capacity, and providing advice and support so CCUS can play an integral role in reducing carbon emissions. Government agencies, global corporations, research bodies, and non-government organisations committed to learning and adopting CCUS technologies will participate in this event.


Boosting innovation and investments through carbon pricing

22 June 2023, 14:00 -15:30 CEST, session at European Sustainable Energy Week 2023

Organised by the European Commission, the European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) is the biggest annual event dedicated to renewables and efficient energy use in Europe. This year’s 17th edition of EUSEW takes place in a hybrid format, with both participants and speakers able to attend online and onsite, under the theme: ‘Accelerating the clean energy transition – towards lower bills and greater skills’. On 22 June at 14:00, the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Climate Action is organising a session called Boosting innovation and investments through carbon pricing. It will be discussed how the strengthened Innovation Fund and Modernisation Fund, all financed with the revenues of the EU Emissions Trading System, complement each other in financing the low-carbon transition.


Webinar: Scrubbing the Skies – Developing a Verification Approach for Open Ocean CDR

May 16; ·7 – 8 pm CEST hosted by Institute for Carbon Removal and Policy 

This webinar focuses on how quantification approaches for open ocean carbon removal projects be informed by best practices from other fields or project types. The panelists will also discuss how to adapt coastal macroalgae species to “succeed” in an open ocean environment. Finally, they will discuss how the emerging CDR industry should think about the verification of new carbon removal systems.


Webinar: Direct Air Capture Pre-Commercial Technology Prize

May 16, 2023 03:00 PM to 04:00 PM EDT

The Direct Air Capture (DAC) Pre-Commercial Technology Prize awards up to $3.2 million in cash prizes and $800,000 in technical assistance vouchers to teams that identify a critical need in the DAC industry, develop a solution to address this gap, and test the idea to a degree of scale. It focuses on the steps of ideation and entrepreneurship needed to prepare technologies and businesses for commercialization. This webinar will inform from prize administrators about competition rules, eligibility, and more. Plus, get questions answered live during a Q&A session.


Webinar: Living Blue Carbon Road Map – Community Sessions

May 25, 2023, 8-10 am (PST), May 30, 2023, 4-6 pm (PST), June 1, 2023, 8-10 am (PST) by Ocean Visions

Ocean Visions, The Global Ecosystem for Ocean Solutions, and the Ocean Visions – UN Decade Collaborative Center for Ocean-Climate Solutions are hosting three community sessions to help inform Ocean Visions’ newest road map for ocean CDR. This road map will identify and elaborate on technologies, gaps, needs, risks, and first order priorities to protect and restore living blue carbon systems (mangroves, salt marshes, seagrass beds, kelp forests, and carbon in marine animals). The final map will succinctly summarize knowledge on various approaches, obstacles to their implementation, and critical next steps to increase the efficacy of living blue carbon resources for CDR.


Webinar Series: Model Legislation to Advance Ocean Carbon Dioxide Removal Research

May 11, 2023, 6-7 pm CEST by Ocean Visions

With support from Ocean Visions, Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia University recently published model federal legislation to advance safe and responsible ocean carbon dioxide removal research in the United States. In this webinar, Romany Webb, Associate Research Scholar at Columbia Law School and Deputy Director of the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law, will describe the existing legal framework for ocean carbon dioxide removal research in the U.S. and highlight key gaps and shortcomings in that framework. She will also discuss possible legal reforms to facilitate safe and responsible ocean carbon dioxide removal research.


Call for Applications: Carbon Removal Justice Fellows Program

Deadline for applications: May 20, 2023

Two-week Fellows Program will run from July 10-24, 2023

The National Wildlife Federation and the Institute for Carbon Removal Law and Policy at American University invite applicants for the inaugural cohort of the Carbon Removal Justice Fellows Program („the Fellows Program“). It is designed to bring environmental justice voices and perspectives into the fast-developing field of carbon removal policy, research, and private sector activity. The Fellows Program will:

  • Provide participants with an introduction to the field of carbon removal, centering environmental justice considerations and concerns;
  • Include conversations with key figures in U.S. federal policymaking, the private sector, and civil society; and
  • Involve site visits to two U.S. locations grappling with decisions around carbon removal. 

They invite applications from people who work with or in environmental justice organizations, who represent frontline climate communities, or who have a strong background in environmental justice-oriented organizing and practice. The Fellows Program will provide up to ten participants with a two-week introduction to the field. In addition, one participant will take up a full-time 11-month position with the National Wildlife Federation and work closely with staff at the Institute for Carbon Removal Law and Policy. Applicants should identify whether they are applying for the two-week fellowship, the 11-month opportunity with the National Wildlife Federation, or both.
