Project Title:

Developing a Research Agenda for Carbon Dioxide Removal and Reliable Sequestration
PIN: DELS-BASCPR-16-01        

Major Unit:

Division on Earth and Life Studies
Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences

Sub Unit: Board on Atmospheric Sciences & Climate
Board on Agriculture and Natural Resources
Board on Earth Sciences & Resources
Ocean Studies Board
Board on Energy & Environmental Systems DEPS
Board on Chemical Sciences and Technology

RSO: Thomas, Katherine C

Subject/Focus Area: Agriculture; Earth Sciences; Energy and Energy Conservation; Environment and Environmental Studies; Math, Chemistry and Physics


Project Scope
An ad hoc committee will conduct a study to:

1. Identify the most urgent unanswered scientific and technical questions needed to:

a. assess the benefits, risks, and sustainable scale potential for carbon dioxide removal and sequestration approaches; and
b. increase the commercial viability of carbon dioxide removal and sequestration;

2. Define the essential components of a research and development program and specific tasks required to answer these questions;

3. Estimate the costs and potential impacts of such a research and development program to the extent possible in the timeframe of the study.

4. Recommend ways to implement such a research and development program.

The list of CDR approaches to be examined would include land management, accelerated weathering, bioenergy with capture, direct air capture, geologic sequestration, blue carbon approaches, and other approaches deemed by the study committee to be of similar viability.


 
Project Duration: 20 months
