  • Webinar: Technological solutions for negative emissions and CO2 removal, an essential tool to limit global warming and protect the planet?
Calendar13 July 2022, 2:00pm - 3:00pm


The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Sixth assessment working group III report highlights that carbon dioxide removal (CDR) and negative emissions technologies, such as bio-energy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) and direct air capture (DAC), as well as nature-based solutions, will have an important role to play in reaching ambitious net-zero targets, but costs will need to come down for them to be commercially viable.

Presenters and topics

Jasmin Kemper, IEAGHG Senior Technology Analyst, will give an overview of engineered CDR and introduce the concepts of DAC and BECCS, highlighting the opportunities, challenges and ultimately the role they can play in reaching net-zero targets.

The second part of the webinar will provide a DACS company perspective. Helen Bray, European Policy Director at Carbon Engineering will highlight how they are working with partners to deploy DAC facilities across the world.

Eadbhard Pernot, Policy Associate from the Clean Air Task Force (CATF) will talk on the need for real, measurable and permanent carbon dioxide removal certification, supported by a transparent regulatory framework, which avoids double-counting and leakages, and also ensures additionality.

This webinar is the second part in a series on CCS sponsored by SPE Gaia, IOGP, OGCI and Ipieca, sharing knowledge and good practice around the scaling up of this technology, including key issues, environmental responsibility, financial incentives, policy, and liability concerns.
