Science Special - Direct Air Capture pt. 2

It's Science Friday - the weekly blog where we round up scientific articles on carbon removal and share them with you. We're still focusing on the potential of direct air capture, so the following take a policy oriented approached to advancing direct air capture technologies. 

This article from Pielke compares the cost of direct air capture to other stabilization technologies and concludes that direct air capture deserves to be included in international policy debate. 
 

In turn, this report from David Keith, discusses the effect of developed direct air capture technologies (running two scenarios - one with cost of capture and sequestration at $200/ton and another at $500/ton) on near term abatement pathways. 

This piece is a comment to the previous paper by David Keith explores the ability for direct air capture technology to be integrated to existing political and economic structures. 

See you next week!
