The importance of negative emissions
In order to mitigate climate change, negative emissions at massive scale have to be established.
Six options for negative emissions
Six options for the creation of carbon sinks currently considered promising
Synergies between different NETs
It is all about synergies, not about competition. In order to prevent the worst adverse effects of climate change,
all possible solutions are well needed.
Three nature-based, "no-regret" options for carbon sinks
These options are (i)readily available, (ii)cost-effective today and (iii)provide for co-benefits
Increasing the amount of carbon stored in forests and preference for material use of biomass
Pyrogenic Carbon Capture and Storage (PyCCS), particularly the use of biochar for animal husbandry, soil improvement and in construction
Increasing the amount of Soil Organic Matter (SOM) by adapted land management practice
