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.


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.


Podcast: Carbon Removal at COP26 & the US commits billions towards DAC

by Nori (Carbon Removal Newsroom at Spotify)

The most significant Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) policy updates from COP26 were summarized here. Many countries are pledging to bring their emissions to net-zero in the next few decades. What are the specifics of these new pledges, how does CDR fit into all of this, and what needs to happen to push the CDR industry forward in a timely manner?


Carbon 180: The future of Direct Air Capture is knocking

by Peter Minor, PhD, director of science and innovation

A few start-ups have embraced new innovations that will greatly accelerate the path to gigaton-scale removal. C180’s been keeping an eye out, and they have identified three core developments that could supercharge the DAC industry — and the policy support needed to implement them.


ICEF 2021 Roadmap: Carbon Mineralization

David Sandalow, Roger Aines, Julio Friedmann, Peter Kelemen, Colin McCormick, Ian Power, Briana Schmidt, Siobhan A. (Sasha) Wilson (ICEF Innovation Roadmap Project, November 2021)

This ninth ICEF roadmap explores a topic that has received too little attention: the potential for carbon mineralization to play an important role in helping fight climate change. Carbon mineralization is a natural process in which carbon dioxide (CO2) becomes bound in rocks as a solid mineral, permanently removing the CO2 from the atmosphere.


Lawson et al. (2022): Integrated direct air capture and oxidative dehydrogenation of propane with CO2 at isothermal conditions

Shane Lawson, Khaled Baamran, Kyle Newport, Turki Alghamadi, Gary Jacobs, Fateme Rezaei, Ali A. Rownaghi IN: Applied Catalysis B: Environmental (Vol. 303), 2022,

In this study they manufactured the first-generation of DFM (dual-functional materials) adsorbent/catalyst monoliths, comprised of CaO (adsorbent) and M@ZSM-5 (M = V-, Ga-, Ti-, or Ni-oxide) heterogeneous catalysts, using our novel direct metal-oxide 3D printing technique.


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.
