Why It’s So Hard to Capture CO2 From the Air

Studies show carbon emissions are not slowing down fast enough to prevent 1.5 ℃ of warming. Could negative emission technologies be the solution?

Negative emission technologies will not compensate for inadequate climate change mitigation efforts, say European science academies…
“A new report confirms that negative emission technologies (NETs) offer only “limited realistic potential” to remove large amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and not at the scale envisaged in some climate scenarios.”

Can We Really Scrub Carbon Dioxide From the Atmosphere?…
“Removing carbon dioxide that is already in the air is seen as a potential way to combat global warming. There are various approaches, lumped together as ‘negative emissions technologies’ to distinguish them from technologies that reduce or eliminate emissions from power plants and other sources.”

Scientists Develop Lab-Made Mineral That Will Suck CO2 From The Atmosphere…
“A dream solution is that humans could develop a way to suck as much CO2 from the atmosphere as we release, and combined with greenhouse gas emission reductions, we could slow or reverse the tide of climate change.”
