Capture 6

…is a Public Benefit Corporation with offices in Berkeley, California, USA and Rotorua, NZ. Capture6 focuses on enhanced approaches to capturing greenhouse gases from the atmosphere (direct air capture). Their innovation is driving down the cost of carbon removal to less than $100 USD per tonne today. Capture6 has developed the SPACERSTM framework to describe their CDR approach, which is based on the „Oxford Principles on Carbon Offsetting“ that calls for moving to CDR that is permanent, irreversible, and with a small physical footprint to not displace or impact local communities.

Bui & Dowell (2022): Greenhouse Gas Removal Technologies

Editors: Mai Bui & Niall Mac Dowell, 22 Aug 2022, Royal Society of Chemistry, Print ISBN 978-1-83916-199-5, 502 pp., https://doi.org/10.1039/9781839165245

„This book provides the most up-to-date information on GGR technologies that provide removal of atmosphere CO2, giving insight into their role and value in achieving climate change mitigation targets. Chapters discuss the issues associated with commercial development and deployment of GGRs, providing potential approaches to overcome these hurdles through a combination of political, economic and R&D strategies. With contributions from leaders in the field, this title is an indispensable resource for graduate students and researchers in academia and industry, working in chemical engineering, mechanical engineering and energy policy.“

Frontier’s next purchase cycle

Deadline: September 2, 2022 by 10pm ET

Frontier looks for permanent carbon removal solutions that have the potential to be low-cost and high-volume in the future, even if they’re not today. To support technologies at different stages of development, Frontier deploy funds by purchasing carbon removal through various tracks. Thus, Frontiers has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for their Fall 2022 carbon removal purchase cycle.

„Our Carbon Removal Startup Wishlist“

by Ryan Orbuch on lowercarboncapital.com

Here is a compilation of further CDR ideas that could possibly be implemented in technologies: „Yet, there are still some carbon removal methods that we think could use some more love. They probably won’t all work, and most of them require a lot more fundamental research to understand potential risks and tradeoffs.“

Bachman et al. (2022): Rail-based direct air carbon capture

E. Bachman, Alexandra Tavasoli, T. Alan Hatton, Christos T. Maravelias, Erik Haites, Peter Styring, Alán Aspuru-Guzik, Jeffrey MacIntosh, Geoffrey Ozin IN: Joule Vol 6 (7), pp. 1368-1381, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.joule.2022.06.025

The paper presents a technology for deploying specially designed, self-contained DAC railcars on both diesel and electrified rail lines outfitted with battery arrays, CO2 direct air capture systems, compression equipment, and ancillary gear that uniquely exploits the substantial sustainable energy generated on-board the train through regenerative braking as well as from solar panels mounted on compatible railcars.

Open consultation – Greenhouse gas removals (GGR) business models

Government UK; Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy

This consultation is seeking views on the design of a business model to attract private investment and enable GGR projects to deploy at scale from the mid-to-late 2020s. The consultation is open to all organisations and individuals, but will be of particular interest to those with an interest in GGR technologies and negative emissions markets. This consultation closes at 11:45pm on 27 September 2022.
