Online event: Inherit CS – CDR via Anaerobic Digestion

Tue, May 3, 2022; 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM CEST by OpenAir

„This Is CDR“ welcomes „Inherit Carbon Solutions“ co-founders Kaja Voss and Mike Carpenter to talk about the company’s scalable CDR method of capture and geologic sequestration of biogenic CO2 from biogas, waste treatment, landfill, and other anaerobic digestion processes.


A Common Framework for consistent conduct and transparent reporting of carbon dioxide removal and CCU Technology Appraisal, Volume II

Manuscript deadline: 01 February 2022

This Research Topic of Frontiers is part of the Harmonizing Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) and Techno-Economic Analysis (TEA) guidelines series: „Harmonizing Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) and Techno-Economic Analysis (TEA) guidelines: A Common Framework for consistent conduct and transparent reporting of carbon dioxide removal and CCU Technology Appraisal, Volume I„. The group now presents to the Editors of FIC-NET this proposal to put together an invitation-only article collection on harmonizing efforts for assessments for carbon dioxide capture, removal, utilization, and storage.


Technical paper: Reaching zero with renewables capturing carbon

Martina Lyons, Paul Durrant and Karan Kochha (IRENA reports: Technical Paper 4/2021)

This technical Paper explores the status and potential of carbon capture and storage (CCS), carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) and carbon dioxide removal (CDR) technologies and their roles alongside renewables in the deep decarbonisation of energy systems. It summarises the status in terms of current deployment and costs, potential future roles, and the challenges and prospects for scaling-up their use in the context of the 1.5°C climate change goal and achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. The annexes provide additional resources and more detailed background information, including a discussion of key components, and tables presenting information on existing and planned projects.


Splash K Line makes history with successful carbon capture at sea

„Carbon capture and storage at sea is now a thing following landmark trials onboard a Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line) coal carrier. Tokyo-headquartered K Line has been carrying out trials of a new contraption it has installed on a ship on charter to Tohoku Electric Power, which it developed in association with Mitsubishi Shipbuilding and ClassNK. The captured CO2 had a purity of more than 99.9%, which allows it potentially to be used in a wide range of applications, including chemical processes to enhance production of fertilizer or methanol, general use such as dry ice for cooling, and enhanced oil recovery to increase crude oil production.“


Chemical Engineering: Integration of CO2 Direct Air Caputre and Alcohol-to-Jet Fuels Manufacturing

„A feasibility study is underway for the world’s first commercial facility that integrates direct air capture (DAC) of atmospheric carbon dioxide with gas fermentation of CO2 and production of aviation fuels. LanzaTech (Chicago, Ill.; and Carbon Engineering (Squamish, B.C.; have partnered on this first-of-its-kind facility to produce sustainable aviation fuel from atmospheric CO2.“


Swoboda, Philipp; et al. (2021): Remineralizing soils? The agricultural usage of silicate rock powders: A review

Swoboda, Philipp; Döring, Thomas F.; Hamer, Martin (2021): Remineralizing soils? The agricultural usage of silicate rock powders: A review. In Science of the Total Environment, p. 150976. DOI: 10.1016/j.scitotenv.2021.150976.

„Soil nutrient depletion threatens global food security and has been seriously underestimated for potassium (K) and several micronutrients. This is particularly the case for highly weathered soils in tropical countries, where classical soluble fertilizers are often not affordable or not accessible. One way to replenish macro- and micronutrients are ground silicate rock powders (SRPs). Rock forming silicate minerals contain most nutrients essential for higher plants, yet slow and inconsistent weathering rates have restricted their use in the past. Recent findings, however, challenge past agronomic objections which insufficiently addressed the factorial complexity of the weathering process. This review therefore first presents a framework with the most relevant factors for the weathering of SRPs through which several outcomes of prior studies can be explained.“
