New Roads To Removal Report Assesses Different CDR Approaches in the United States

New Roads To Removal Report Assesses Different CDR Approaches - Carbon Heralds

A new report titled Roads to Removal (R2R) addresses the pressing need for carbon dioxide removal (CDR) and looks at various different approaches. 

The Roads to Removal report is a national initiative in the United States comprising the work of 68 scientists and 13 institutions.

It was born after the US set out to develop CDR pathways that would effectively help remove CO2 from the air at gigaton scale – a climate solution identified by the IPCC as necessary to limit global warming. 

CDR is critical to mitigating the climate crisis and must be deployed rapidly alongside steps aimed at reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

The report assesses the regionally specific opportunities for carbon removal across the United States and features a series of interactive maps to illustrate them. 

The different CDR approaches evaluated by the R2R researchers include Forests, Soils, Biomass Carbon Removal and Storage (BiCRS) and Direct Air Capture (DAC).

To provide a full understanding of the appropriateness of each of these approaches in the different parts of the country, the report also closely looks at the costs and feasibility of both storing and transporting the captured CO2 emissions. 

Furthermore, the environmental and socioeconomic co-benefits of the different CDR techniques are also considered, with a point being made of reducing or altogether avoiding the negative consequences for communities and the environment.
