Avoiding the worst effects of the climate emergency is a hugely complex problem. Where can we store all the carbon we have been blowing into the atmosphere for years? ‘Just capture it, recycle or bury…’ Carbon Management is the popular magic word. But new technologies like carbon capture also show that there is no silver […]

With the ongoing climate emergency and nations’ commitments to meet net-zero goals by 2050, there’s a heightened need to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions through whatever means possible. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) or carbon capture, utilization, and sequestration (CCUS) are included in the mitigation pathways set out by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. […]

In the EU, airlines are under pressure to cut carbon emissions or pay for the emissions they create. They are also under some pressure from consumers who are concerned about flying because of the enormous amount of pollution flying creates. Clearly, large airplanes are not going electric anytime soon, and we’re just inching our way […]

Carbon dioxide is an important molecule necessary for life on Earth. Trees need CO2 for photosynthesis, crops produce higher yields in its presence, and some bacteria can transform it into food. The molecule is even an important part of human health, driving us to take in big breaths of oxygen. However, too much CO2 can have a […]

Berkeley Lab researchers are developing a gamut of technologies for direct air capture The need for negative emissions technologies to address our climate crisis has become increasingly clear. At the rate that our planet is emitting carbon dioxide — adding about 50 gigatons every year — we will have to remove carbon dioxide at the […]
