Removing carbon dioxide to supplement emissions reduction

Although reducing GHG emissions remains the major policy priority, most scenarios compatible with the 1.5 ºC global warming target foresee the need for CO2 removal from the atmosphere during the 21st century.

NETPs and Bio-Geophysics Databases

As part of its NEGEM activities, Imperial College of London is developing two databases of NETPs and of biogeophysics data sources, to support mathematical analyses of different greenhouse gas removal


Stakeholder views on NETPs governance

NETPs include a vast array of practises and technologies that capture CO2 through biological and/or geological storage, that are currently at different levels of readiness, efficiencies, costs and scalability, leading


Negative Emissions Technologies and Practices - NETPs

NETPs are a portfolio of mechanisms to remove CO2 from the atmosphere and to permanently store it on land, underground, or in the ocean.

NEGEM is a research and innovation project to:

Identify promising NETPs

having significant real-world potential in terms of technological parameters, planetary boundaries, costs, social acceptance and feasibility.

Create scalable pathways

that include NETPs to contribute to climate neutrality as laid out in the Paris Agreement and in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals.
