This article identifies how the deployment of enhanced rock weathering within existing croplands offers opportunities to align agriculture and climate policy, while needing to overcome political inertia to develop regulatory and incentive frameworks.
This paper examines the international and U.S. legal framework for enhanced weathering on land and in ocean waters.
This article provides a comprehensive assessment of the economic costs, energy requirements, technical parameterization, and global and regional carbon removal potential of enhanced weathering.
This article considers the ethical issues that arise (or would arise) in the large-scale deployment of enhanced weathering.
Enhanced Chemical Weathering as a Geoengineering Strategy to Reduce Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide, Supply Nutrients, and Mitigate Ocean Acidification
This scientific paper is an interdisciplinary review of enhanced weathering, the processes involved, and the applicability and risks of applying the method with a look at the legal framework for enhanced weathering.
Testimony before the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources hearing to examine the challenges and opportunities for large-scale carbon management.
Clearing the Air: A Federal RD&D Initiative and Management Plan for Carbon Dioxide Removal Technologies
This report provides a set of recommendations and detailed implementation plans for a 10-year, $10.7 billion research, development, and demonstration initiative in the United States to bring new pathways for technological CDR to commercial readiness.
This Policy Brief assesses 18 ocean-based measures, including some carbon dioxide removal techniques, to support climate policies and the revision of National Determined Contributions (NDCs) in the areas of mitigation and adaptation.
Moral Conflicts of several “Green” terrestrial Negative Emission Technologies regarding the Human Right to Adequate Food – A Review
This paper investigates whether BECCS, afforestation/reforestation, and enhanced weathering would cause moral conflicts regarding the human right to adequate food if implemented on a scale sufficient to limit global warming “to well below 2 C”.
This article lays out how using engineered CDR techniques to achieve net-zero will require substantial cooperation between groups of people who commonly do not work together, including technical experts, financiers, and government officials.
