Cox et al. (2022): Deliberating enhanced weathering: public frames, iconic ecosystems, and the governance of carbon removal at scale

Emily Cox, Elspeth Spence, Nicholas Pidgeon IN: Public Understanding of Science, SAGE Publications (UK and US), University of Cardiff

Public perceptions of ERW and its wider social and environmental implications will be a critical factor determining its potential; the authors use six two-day deliberative workshops in England, Wales and Illinois to understand public views. Consideration of ERW deployment in tropical countries led participants to frame it from a social justice perspective, which had been much less prevalent when considering Western agricultural contexts, and generated assumptions of increased scale, which heightened concerns about detrimental social and environmental impacts.

Damartzis et al. (2022): Solvents for Membrane-Based Post-Combustion CO2 Capture for Potential Application in the Marine Environment

Theodoros Damartzis, Akrivi Asimakopoulou, Dimitrios Koutsonikolas, George Skevis, Chara Georgopoulou, George Dimopoulos, Lampros Nikolopoulos, Konstantinos Bougiouris , Hannes Richter ,Udo Lubenau, Solon Economopoulos, Cristina Perinu, David Hopkinson, Grigorios Panagakos IN: Appl. Sci. 12(12), 6100; https://doi.org/10.3390/app12126100

In this paper, the authors present an comprehensive review of the different solvents that can be used for post-combustion CO2 capture on-board ships. Furthermore, they investigated the solvents’ performance as determined by their inherent characteristics, properties, and behavior for a range of operating conditions against the strict shipping requirements.

Carbon Negative Shot Summit

July 20, 2022 organized by DOE – US Department of Energy

The Carbon Negative Shot Summit will convene industry innovators, environmental and climate justice organizations, tribal nations, labor unions, academia, government leaders, and others to increase collaboration that will advance the deployment of commercially viable, just, and sustainable carbon dioxide removal in the United States.

Merkouris et al. (2022): Regulation of Ocean CDR Methods in the Kingdom of the Netherlands

Panos Merkouris, F. A. Nelissen, Medes Malaihollo IN: R. M. Webb, K. G. Silverman-Roati , & M. Gerrard (Eds.): Ocean Carbon Dioxide Removal for Climate Mitigation: The Legal Framework; Edward Elgar Publishing

This Chapter outlines the relevant Dutch Acts and other legal instruments that are relevant in connection to activities related to ocean CDR methods. Of special importance in this context are the water permit, the nature permit and the environmental impact assessments that have to be conducted. This Chapter also includes an analysis of upcoming Dutch legislation, namely the Environment and Planning Act. Although this Act has not entered into force yet, it is designed with a view to harmonizing all relevant Dutch Acts that could regulate ocean CDR methods.

Nature – Schleussner et al. (2022): An emission pathway classification reflecting the Paris Agreement climate objectives

Carl-Friedrich Schleussner, Gaurav Ganti, Joeri Rogelj, Matthew J. Gidden IN: Nature Commun Earth Environ 3, 135, https://doi.org/10.1038/s43247-022-00467-w

For Paris Agreement compatible pathways, the authors report net zero CO2 and greenhouse gas emissions around 2050 and 2065, respectively. They illustrate how pathway design criteria not rooted in the Paris Agreement, such as the 2100 temperature level, result in scenario outcomes wherein about 6 – 24% higher deployment (interquartile range) of carbon dioxide removal is observed.

The Hill: The importance of local government in making carbon removal a public service

by Susie Strife, opinion contributor

„Given the federal inaction on climate change, local governments need to step up to reduce emissions and remove legacy climate pollution from the atmosphere. In the process, cities, counties and states are uniquely positioned to help scale carbon dioxide removal (CDR) responsibly and provide a blueprint for federal action.“

Nature restoration and carbon removal are not the same. Here’s why it matters

Robert Höglund, Zeke Hausfather, Karen D Holl, Cyril Brunner, Natalya Yakusheva Jarlebring, Alexander Koch on climatechangenews.com

„In this article, the authors argue for the need to separate solutions that restore carbon to the short carbon cycle, from those that permanently store it away. Nature restoration is a crucial climate solution with large positive effects, but should not be used to offset fossil emissions in net-zero accounting.“
