Carbon dioxide removal, capture and storage

Submission status
Submission deadline

Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) and carbon capture and storage (CCS) are two distinct options to help achieve climate goals by reducing atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations. Carbon Dioxide Removal methods involve capturing carbon dioxide directly from the atmosphere, in order to store it in land, ocean, or geological formations. Methods include land management, such as afforestation and reforestation, or enhanced rock weathering, or technological methods, such as direct air carbon capture and storage. In contrast, carbon capture and storage is defined as the capture of carbon emissions from power plants and industrial processes before they enter the atmosphere.

In this cross-journal Collection, we bring together studies that address novel and existing carbon dioxide removal and carbon capture and storage methods and their potential for up-scaling, including critical questions of timing, location, and cost. We also welcome articles on methodologies that measure and verify the climate and environmental impact and explore public perceptions.

This Collection supports and amplifies research directly related to: SDG 13 - Climate Action.
