About this Research Topic
It is clear that Negative Emission Technologies (NETs) can never be a wholesale replacement for reducing emissions but may be useful in displacing some energy/emission intensive sectors. It is unlikely that a single NETs proposal can be scaled sufficiently to meet this demand, and a portfolio of approaches may be more feasible. The primary removal methods of focus in this research topic of Frontiers in Climate will include all negative emissions strategies that directly mitigate climate change. This interdisciplinary topic will focus on a variety of technologies and methodologies including:
• Land management to store carbon in above or below ground biomass
• Bioenergy and direct air capture with carbon capture and reliable storage
• Mineral carbonation and enhanced weathering
Keywords: Negative Emissions, Carbon Capture and Storage, Mineral Carbonation, CO2 Removal, Land Management, BECCS, Ocean Alkalinity, Enhanced Weathering, Direct Air Capture
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
