Carbon removal certification

Summary

Carbon removals from forests, agricultural practices or engineered solutions will play a crucial role in achieving climate neutrality by 2050 as they will balance emissions from agriculture, aviation or specific industries that are the most difficult to eliminate.

The initiative aims to support the development of sustainable carbon removal solutions. It will propose an action plan to promote carbon farming and develop a regulatory framework for the certification of carbon removals.

In a project proposal last year we suggested to monitor the CO2 sink of industrial hemp based on CO2 flux measurements at a crop site of the ICOS research infrastructure in Germany (ICOS - Integrated Carbon Observation System). Hemp biomass productivity is higher than the maize productivity and the hemp growing season length is shorter than the growing season length of other typical crops. Due to the long data record (since 2005) we could also...

Klär- oder Biogas aus der Biomasse-Faulung kann unter geringem Energieaufwand (10kWh/kg H2) mit einem nicht-thermischen Plasma in Wasserstoff und festen Kohlenstoff aufgespalten werden. Der Kohlenstoff in seiner festen Form wird dauerhaft in Produkten wie Asphalt, Zement oder Böden gebunden. Der produzierte Wasserstoff ist dabei nicht nur ein CO2-freier, sondern sogar CO2-negativer Energieträger (Erklärvideo). Damit gehört das Verfahren zu...
