Online event: This is CDR

Tue, January 4, 2022 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM CET

OpenAir is excited to present an online event series that explores the wide range of carbon dioxide removal (CDR) solutions currently being researched, developed, and deployed, and discusses them in the context of policy proposals under development for New York, and other states and localities.


Yang et al. (2021): Harmonized comparison of virgin steel production using biomass with carbon capture and storage for negative emissions

Fan Yang, Hans Meerman, André Faaij IN: International Journal of Greenhouse Gas Control 112, 2021,103519,

Mass and energy balances were used to evaluate each route’s cradle-to-gate CO2eq emissions. Results indicate that using either CO2 capture and storage (CCS) or biomass can reduce, but not eliminate, CO2eq emissions in the iron and steel sector. However, the combination of CCS and biomass (BECCS) can result in CO2-neutral or even CO2-negative steelmaking.


Tatarewicz et al. (2021): The Role of BECCS in Achieving Climate Neutrality in the European Union

Igor Tatarewicz, Michał Lewarski, Sławomir Skwierz, Vitaliy Krupin, Robert Jeszke, Maciej Pyrka, Krystian Szczepanski, Monika Sekuła IN: Energies 2021, 14, 7842.

This research is devoted to an analysis of BECCS as a negative emissions technology (NET) and the assessment of its implementation impact upon the possibility of achieving EU climate goals by 2050.


Biomass to biochar – maximizing the Carbon Value

by the Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources (Washington State University)

For these up to date report, fourty biochar producers, practitioners, scientists, and engineers held a virtual workshop in April 2020 to chart a roadmap (184 pages, summary 18 pages) for future development of the biochar industry in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.


Yang et al. (2021): Biological parts for plant biodesign to enhance land-based carbon dioxide removal

Xiaohan Yang, Degao Liu, Haiwei Lu, David J. Weston, Jin-Gui Chen, Wellington Muchero, Stanton Martin, Yang Liu, Md Mahmudul Hassan, Guoliang Yuan, Udaya C. Kalluri, Timothy J. Tschaplinski, Julie C. Mitchell, Stan D. Wullschleger, Gerald A. Tuskan IN: BiodesignResearch, Article ID:9798714, 32 pp.

In this article, validated biological parts (e.g., protein encoding genes, non-coding RNAs) were summarized for biological engineering of carbon dioxide removal traits in terrestrial plants to accelerate land-based decarbonization in bioenergy plantations and agricultural settings and promote a vibrant bioeconomy.


Stockholm Exergi’s project for negative emissions receives EU support

by PR Newswire at

The European Commission announced today that Stockholm Exergi’s project for negative emissions – BECCS@STHLM (Bio Energy Carbon Capture and Storage) – has advanced to the last step in the selection process to receive support from the European Innovation Fund. The project was selected based on its potential to transform the European energy industry and mitigate climate change.


Nature – Galán-Martín et al. (2021): Delaying carbon dioxide removal in the European Union puts climate targets at risk

Ángel Galán-Martín, Daniel Vázquez, Selene Cobo, José Antonio Caballero, Gonzalo Guillén-Gosálbez IN: Nat Commun 12, 6490 (2021). (open access)

Here, they investigate the still poorly understood implications of delaying CDR actions, focusing on integrating direct air capture and bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (DACCS and BECCS) into the European Union power mix.
