"We are seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher to investigate how microbial ecophysiology, population dynamics, and microbe-mineral-organic matter interactions regulate the persistence of microbial residues in soil under changing moisture regimes. You will support a multi-disciplinary project applying isotope-targeted ‘omics approaches and other unique technologies to quantitatively evaluate how the soil microbiome and its products interact with contrasting mineral assemblages to control soil C persistence."
"The CO2 Removal and Conversion division provides Headquarters oversight, management, and direction for the Department’s research, development, demonstration, and deployment (RDD&D) on carbon dioxide removal (CDR), including direct air capture, direct ocean capture, biomass with carbon removal and storage, and ex situ enhanced mineralization; and CO2 conversion to products, such as synthetic fuels and chemicals, concrete, carbon fibers, etc. The division conducts RDD&D to optimize CDR technologies for adoption, etc."
"Carbon Gap was created to advocate for the development of responsible carbon removal in Europe, necessary to meet the climate pledges of net zero and to return to a stable climate. Carbon Gap exists to enable and accelerate the policymaking process, through independent, science-based support to policymakers, based on a compelling vision for CDR in Europe, which places carbon removal at the heart of climate and economic/industrial policy."
"Ebb Carbon is pioneering a new method of carbon removal that uses electrochemistry to enhance the ocean’s natural ability to safely store CO2, while reducing ocean acidity. Our approach has the potential to be one of the most scalable, safe, and affordable ways to remove excess CO2 from our atmosphere."
"Equatic (previously known as Seachange) addresses one of mankind’s most pressing problems, climate change, by removing CO2 from the atmosphere. Equatic’s founders developed an electrochemical process that traps CO2 in the form of mineral solids (e.g., chalk powder: CaCO3), and bicarbonate ions (HCO3-) that are dissolved in seawater. This allows the oceans to re-absorb additional CO2 from the atmosphere, thereby reducing its CO2 content. Beyond CO2 removal, the Equatic process also produces hydrogen, a clean fuel as a co-product."
"In this episode Toby talks about what’s going on with CDRLA, and what kind of political dynamics he’s found as OpenAir wades into state-level policymaking. Radhika and Toby will also delve into some of the bigger questions about the public acceptability challenges of growing carbon removal. What should advocates and CDR companies be doing to communicate with the public, and what are the stakes?"
"Matthew Long joins Wil Burns and Anna Madlener to discuss his role at the National Center for Atmospheric Research: Climate and Global Dynamics and the Cworthy project, a non-profit research organization to develop the scientific and technical tools associated with quantifying ocean carbon dioxide removal and leveraging those tools to bolster the monitoring, reporting, and verification of carbon dioxide removal. Matthew discusses the research that he conducts and the successes and challenges that the research has identified."
"On this episode of Reversing Climate Change, Patricia and Mike join Ross, Siobhan, and Asa to explain how their technology, a Pac-Man meets Roomba meets WALL-E style robot, collects seaweed and sinks it in the deep sea. Patricia and Mike discuss Seaweed Generation’s pilot project with Antigua, describing the advantage their process may have over other methods of carbon removal and how they’ve been received by the community there. Listen in for insight around the growing acceptance of open-systems pathways for carbon removal and learn how you can get involved in helping Seaweed Generation tackle the sargassum problem around the world."

After a $3.2 billion exit, tech entrepreneur founds carbon removal start-up | Kitco Mining
“A bad experience buying carbon offsets inspired Peter Reindhardt to found Charm Industrial. Last week Reinhardt spoke to Kitco about his carbon removal company (Charm Industrial).”
California & Carbon Removal: Opportunity, Policy, Activism | OpenAir
“In this one hour action webinar hosted by OpenAir, state CDR advocates present the case for California carbon removal leadership, and provide an overview the Carbon Dioxide Removal Market Development Act (SB 308 - Becker), newly introduced state legislation that aims to establish California's global leadership in this field.”

Solid Biofuels: Agricultural Biomass and BECCS (Bio-Energy with Carbon Capture and Storage) | National Farmers Union Canada
“Biofuelwatch’s Co-Director Almuth Ernsting will helps NFU members understand emerging technologies such as Bio-Energy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) and the possible demands on forests and farmlands and “agricultural residues” that may be called upon in the future to help fuel negative-emissions electricity production. While liquid biofuels are relatively well understood, solid biofuels are less so and raise a number of critical policy issues.”
Direct Air Capture: The Opportunity in Asia | ERIA: Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia
“The sixth knowledge-sharing workshop by Asia CCUS Network, Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA) held on 31 January 2023 as part of regular knowledge sharing to bridging the knowledge gap on CCUS development and deployment. This time conference brought out the topic of ‘Direct Air Capture: The Opportunity in Asia’ delivered by Carbon Engineering, the expert of Direct Air Capture (DAC) technology based in Vancouver, Canada.”
