IPCC Seeks Expert Participants To Contribute To CDR And CCS Report Meeting

IPCC Seeks Expert Participants To Contribute To CDR And CCS Report Meeting - Carbon Herald

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is seeking expert participants to contribute to the upcoming meeting that will focus on developing the framework for the Methodology Report on Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) Technologies and Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS). 

The organization is calling on its member governments and observer organizations to propose experts who can provide valuable insights and know-how in addressing these critical topics. The meeting, which is being coordinated by the IPCC Task Force on National Greenhouse Gas Inventories (TFI), is scheduled to take place in the latter part of October this year. 

According to Working Group III‘s contribution to the Sixth Assessment Report, the use of CDR technology is necessary to offset difficult-to-reduce emissions in order to achieve net-zero CO2 or greenhouse gas emissions.

The IPCC has recognized the need to update its guidelines from 2006 for national inventories and has therefore asked its Task Force on National Greenhouse Gas Inventories to create a Methodology Report on carbon dioxide removal technologies, carbon capture utilization, and storage. 

This scoping meeting will outline the content of the Methodology Report for consideration by the Panel in early 2025.

Nominees that want to attend the meeting must possess relevant knowledge in the estimation of sinks or sources related to various technologies, such as direct air capture and storage, bioenergy CCS and CCUS, concrete carbonation, enhanced weathering, ocean alkalinity enhancement, blue carbon management in coastal wetlands, soil carbon sequestration in crop and grasslands, peatland and coastal wetland restoration, biochar, ocean fertilization, wastewater treatment and alkalinity, forestry, and other unspecified CO2 removal technologies.

Candidates selected for the category of carbon capture, utilization, and storage must possess expertise in calculating sources or reservoirs involved in capturing, transporting, injecting, storing, and utilizing carbon dioxide. The utilization of CO2 can be for enhanced recovery of oil, gas, or coal bed methane, for manufacturing chemicals, or for developing other products.

The Methodology Report is expected to be finalized by the end of 2027, and interested candidates can apply to attend through their local focal point.
