IMPORTANT UPDATE: The 2nd International Conference on Negative CO2 Emissions has been postponed by one year, to May 18-21, 2021, due to the outbreak of Covid-19.
The objective of the Paris Agreement is to limit global warming to well below 2ºC, and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5ºC. At the same time as negative emissions appear to be indispensable to meet adopted climate targets, the large future negative emissions assumed in climate models have been questioned and warnings have been raised about relying on very large and uncertain negative emissions in the future. With the future climate at stake, a deeper and fuller understanding of the various aspects of negative emissions is needed.
The 2nd International Conference on Negative CO2 Emissions brings together a wide range of scientists, experts and stakeholders, to engage in various aspects of research relating to negative CO2 emissions. This will include negative emission technologies, climate modelling, climate policies and incentives. The main topics of the conference include:
- Bio Energy Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS)
- Biospheric storage
- Cross-cutting sessions
- Direct air capture
- Enhanced weathering
- Ocean alkalization
