Sun et al. (2023): Recent progress on direct air capture of carbon dioxide

Jialiang Sun, Meng Zhao, Liang Huang, Tianyu Zhang, Qiang Wang IN: Current Opinion in Green and Sustainable Chemistry, 100752,

In this work, the authors systematically summarized the latest progress on the development of direct air capture and comprehensively reviewed the properties and performance of DAC adsorbents, which are categorized as physisorption and chemisorption according to sorption mechanisms.


Funding novel research towards atmospheric CO2 removal

Tue, 28 February 2023, 16:00 – 17:00 GMT; by Carbon Technology Research Foundation (CTRF)

CTRF’s inaugural call for research proposals will be launched by the Director of Research, Dr Sarah Wagstaffe-Jones. In 2023, they will be offering up to £4M in anticipation of funding 4-7 projects. During the session, CTRF’s initial priority areas for funding will be communicated and guidance on the application and peer review processes which will be adopted by CTRF will be provided. This webinar will be of particular interest to researchers working within the CDR space, or those wishing to pivot their innovative programmes and methodologies towards the sector. We would also encourage policymakers, funders and investors to join in the discussion.


Sodiq et al. (2023): A review on progress made in direct air capture of CO2

Ahmed Sodiq, Yasser Abdullatif, Brahim Aissa, Arash Ostovar, Nashaat Nassar, Muftah El-Naas, Abdulkarem Amhamed IN: Environmental Technology & Innovation 29, 102991,

In this work, the literature was comprehensively reviewed to assess the progress made in DAC, its associated technologies, and the advances made in the state-of-the-art. Thus, it is proposed to use traditional heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system (mainly the air conditioning system), as a preexisting technology, to capture CO2 directly from the atmosphere, such that the energy needed to capture is provided by the HVAC system of choice.


Biden-Harris Administration Announces $3.7 Billion to Kick-Start America’s Carbon Dioxide Removal Industry

Dec 13, on

„The Biden-Harris Administration, through the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), announced the launch of four programs that will help build a commercially viable, just, and responsible carbon dioxide removal industry in the United States. The programs, funded with $3.7 billion from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, will help accelerate private-sector investment, spur advancements in monitoring and reporting practices for carbon management technologies, and provide grants to state and local governments to procure and use products developed from captured carbon emissions.“


NOAA: Carbon dioxide removal as a tool to mitigate climate change

NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) seeks comments on a draft research strategy: NOAA is releasing a new strategy and inviting the public to join upcoming listening sessions that will guide the agency’s potential role in an important part of understanding and addressing climate change — carbon dioxide removal. The public is invited to read the report, review all 11 carbon dioxide removal techniques and strategies, evaluate NOAA’s proposed role in carbon dioxide removal research and provide comments (a Federal Register Notice with instructions for submitting comments will be published shortly).

Virtual listening sessions will be held:

  • Monday, Dec 12 at 3 PM ET. 
  • Wednesday, Dec 14 at 10 AM ET.
  • Wednesday, Dec 14 at 5 PM ET.

Register for any of the above listening sessions at


Valencia (2022): Techno-economic assessment of BECCS systems in power units using residual sugarcane biomass

Doctoral Dissertation by Sara Alexandra Restrepo Valencia, Universidade Estadual de Campinas,106 p.

The thesis was presented to the School of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Campinas in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the
degree of Doctor in Energy Systems Planning. This work aims to evaluate the technical-economic performance of BECCS systems in the generation of electricity using residual sugarcane biomass, in the Brazilian context.


Casaban et al. (2022): The impact of Direct Air Capture during the last two decades: A bibliometric analysis of the scientific research, part I

Daniel Casaban, Sean Ritchie, Elena Tsalaporta IN: Sustainable Chemistry for Climate Action, Vol 1,

In the past, the vast investment in renewable technology is allowing today’s rapid deployment. Why is this not currently happening in the CO2 capture area? This bibliometric analysis which focused on the use of solid sorbents in the CO2 capture field between 2001 and 2021, aims to answer these questions. The study reviewed three capture methods: post-combustion, pre-combustion and DAC, with particular emphasis on the latter.


Arcusa et al. (2022): Carbon removal accounting methodologies: how to rethink the system for negative carbon emissions

Arcusa S., Lackner K., Page R., Sriramprasad V., Hagood, E. (2022) IN: CNCE Working Paper No. 0001, November 2022. Arizona State University KEEP Repository,

The authors analyze current approaches to carbon accounting for removed carbon sold on carbon markets, focusing on carbon crediting under the framing of a remaining carbon budget, the issue of durability, and approaches to accounting methodologies. The authors explore the topic of mixing
carbon with other problems in developing carbon accounting methodologies and highlight the open policy questions. They conclude with a suggested framework for accounting for carbon removal accounting that simplifies climate action and enables a world with negative carbon emissions.


The 2023 OpenAir Carbon Removal Challenge – A student innovation challenge for carbon removal technologies (Applications Open)

The 2023 OpenAir Carbon Removal Challenge is a worldwide contest for students to gain hands-on experience with new technologies that capture excess carbon directly from our atmosphere, soil, and waters. With guidance from researchers and industry experts, student teams will design and build creative, open-source solutions to the carbon pollution problem. The very best approaches will be selected for an in-person showcase at New York University in April 2023.
