The Carbon Technology Research Foundation (CTRF) has announced funding for novel carbon dioxide removal (CDR) methods.
Specifically, the foundation focuses on nature-based solutions that have the potential to be scaled using biotechnology, or what is known as enhanced biological carbon sequestration.
The funding is aimed at academic-led research projects and CTRF is dedicating a webinar on February 28, 2023, to discuss its call for new research proposals.

The webinar will include an introduction to the organization from its founder, Dr Stig Arff and will feature an expert-led panel session, in which the challenges and opportunities of biotechnology use for CDR will be discussed.
The funding offered by the Carbon Technology Research Foundation is set to be up to £4 million (~$4.85 million) and will support between 4 and 7 research projects.
Participation in the webinar, which will take place at 4pm GMT is free and those interested in taking part may register for the online event here.
