Southeast Asian expert perceptions of solar radiation management techniques and carbon dioxide removal approaches: caution, ambivalence, risk precaution, and research directions

Laurence L Delina IN: Environmental Research Communications https://doi.org/10.1088/2515-7620/ac3dc1

This paper describes the responses of seventeen climate and energy experts from southeast Asia on a purposively designed survey that collected expert opinions on SRM and CDR, their risks, impacts, and governance as they pertain to their countries and region. Respondents showed ambivalence towards these techniques, with many supporting ’natural‘ CDR research and deployment while being cautious about ‚technological‘ SRM and CDR research and deployment.

Carbon dioxide removal’s role to the Paris Agreement’s goals

Ben Rubin and Jennifer Brown (American University, School of International Service, Institute for Carbon Removal law and Policy)

Meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement and stopping the worst impacts of climate change raises important questions about the role of CDR, how much of it is required and when, and how it can be deployed responsibly. This resource helps answer these questions on CDR, which is also known as Negative Emissions Technologies (NETs), by drawing on IPCC reports, a CDR Primer, and a report from the Institute for Carbon Removal Law and Policy.

Webinar: How Can Carbon Mineralization Help Fight Climate Change?

6 December 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM

by Columbia Center on Global Energy Policy

A new report co-authored by Columbia University scholars finds the climate change benefits of enhancing carbon mineralization processes could be enormous. The ICEF Carbon Mineralization Roadmap explores several strategies, including injecting CO2-rich fluids into underground rock formations and exposing crushed rocks to CO2-rich gases. Please join the Center on Global Energy Policy as several co-authors of the report present their recommendations for using carbon mineralization processes.

Nature – Noon et al. (2021): Mapping the irrecoverable carbon in Earth’s ecosystems

Monica L. Noon, Allie Goldstein, Juan Carlos Ledezma, Patrick R. Roehrdanz, Susan C. Cook-Patton, Seth A. Spawn-Lee, Timothy Maxwell Wright, Mariano Gonzalez-Roglich, David G. Hole, Johan Rockström & Will R. Turner IN: Nature Sustainability (2021). https://doi.org/10.1038/s41893-021-00803-6

„There are some natural places that we cannot afford to lose due to their irreplaceable carbon reserves. Here we map ‘irrecoverable carbon’ globally to identify ecosystem carbon that remains within human purview to manage and, if lost, could not be recovered by mid-century, by when we need to reach net-zero emissions to avoid the worst climate impacts.“

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.

Latest Special Issue: CO2 Utilization Technologies

Oxford University Press; Clean Energy Volume 5, Issue 4 (December 2021); ISSN 2515-4230

In a new special issue, authors discuss new CO2 -utilization technologies at various stages of development and commercialization. These technologies have the potential to provide opportunities for emission savings for power and other industrial sectors by partially substituting fossil-fuel raw materials, increasing efficiency and reducing GHG emissions, and generating revenues through producing marketable products.
