Research for a zero-emissions future
The SINTEF Global Climate Fund will fund research into high-potential climate-positive solutions that will result in the net removal of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.
No clear ownership for historical emissions
No UN agreements on offset markets
Limited research to find solutions
A market is, however, emerging
To be able to keep the 1.5 degrees target alive, we need net zero emissions by 2050. To achieve net zero, we must not only cut emissions, but also actively remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere at a massive scale. This can be done through climate-positive solutions. The SINTEF Global Climate Fund will finance research into such solutions.
Technological solutions that allow us to actively remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere are called climate-positive solutions. The SINTEF Climate Fund aims at funding research on these solutions.
eCDR: removing other GHGs
Other greenhouse gases than CO₂ account for 28% of man-made emissions – of these, methane and nitrous oxide are the most critical – and their concentration in the atmosphere is increasing steadily. The eCDR project looks at ways of removing other gases than CO₂ from the atmosphere.
