Negative greenhouse gas emission technologies: Potential, limitations and risks
The Paris Agreement aims to limit global warming to below 2 °C. However, carbon emissions are unlikely to drop fast enough, so that most climate scenarios assume that CO2 will be actively removed from the air with approaches such as forests, soil, direct air capture, minerals and ocean fertilisation. We will present our new report on these negative emission technologies, whose recommendations feed into the development of net-zero emissions strategies.
