Latest issue! Ocean-based Carbon Removal

It is well recognized that climate scenarios must include negative emission technologies (NETs), sometimes called carbon dioxide removal (CDR), on a massive scale. Most recently, the International Energy Agency Net Zero by 2050 (2021) report identified the need for NETs as early as 2035. This urgency is one of the reasons that science and industry must look to the ocean, which comprises 70% of the planet, for CDR solutions. There is a growing community exploring how we might enhance the ocean’s role in CDR to develop an expanded portfolio of removal methods. With the longest coastline in the world, Canada has the potential to lead ocean-based CDR globally.
