The latest and final part of the report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), made up of the world’s leading climate scientists is out and it delivered a “final warning” on the climate crisis, as rising greenhouse gas emissions continue to push the world towards irrevocable damage which requires swift and drastic action to avert. To meet the ambitious and necessary target set at the Paris Agreement, to limit the rise in mean global temperature to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels, drastic reductions on emissions is critical. However innovation and new technology will be needed to achieve carbon dioxide removal (CDR) from the atmosphere in order to achieve net zero global emissions. In my talk I will present an overview of the current CDR space and the pros and cons of each approach, in particular focusing on enhance rock weathering as a high permanence, cost effective and rapidly scalable solution.
