This paper models a wartime-like crash deployment of direct air capture (DAC) as a policy response to the climate crisis, calculating funding, net CO2 removal, and climate impacts.
This thesis paper seeks to answer where Direct Air Capture (DAC) technology fits into current policy and how can DAC companies can best position themselves to maximize the potential of their technology.
This white paper makes the environmental case for an ambitious, targeted, and diversified program of near-term investment in DAC as part of a comprehensive strategy for achieving international climate goals over the next several decades.
This article provides an overview of the need for direct air capture in fighting climate change and highlights some of the emerging legal and regulatory issues of deploying the technology at scale.
Reframing the Climate Change Problem: Evaluating the Political, Technological, and Ethical Management of Carbon Dioxide Emissions in the United States
This dissertation argues that climate change must be reframed as a two-part problem: preventing new CO2 emissions and reducing concentrations, which demands increased investment in DAC research, development, and deployment.
Direct Air Carbon Capture and Sequestration: How It Works and How It Could Contribute to Climate-Change Mitigation
The paper discusses the role of Direct Air Capture in meeting the Paris Agreement, while noting the ecological and ethical considerations, and the potential trade-offs and uncertainties that deserve further investigation.
This is a report prepared by the Rhodium Group to asses the role of Direct Air Capture technology in the US response to climate change and identify near and medium-term policy actions to advance the deployment of Direct Air Capture technology.
Shopify has committed to investing at least $1 million each year into carbon sequestration.
This paper discusses the potential co-benefits of Direct Air Capture, in particular in relation to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations and suggests some policy approaches on how a climate relevant scale could be achieved.
The Potential Role of Direct Air Capture in the German Energy Research Program—Results of a Multi-Dimensional Analysis
This articles explores the role of Direct Air Capture in Germany's 7th Federal Energy Research Program (ERP) and how it may contribute to the German government's energy and climate policy goals.
