To limit global warming, humanity must dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions and expand our toolkit to remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.
The Australian Academy of Science convened a roundtable of experts in 2022 to discuss the scientific capability, research and collaboration needed to support new breakthroughs in greenhouse gas removal.
Australia, with its resources and research capabilities, has the potential for the development of greenhouse gas removal.
This report provides a high-level summary of the roundtable discussions and presentations, and provides some guidance on opportunities and actions to support the development of greenhouse gas removal in Australia.
‘Development of Greenhouse Gas Removal in Australia’ is a 4-page summary of the above report.
This report was launched on 1 March 2023, when Australian Academy of Science President, Professor Chennupati Jagadish, led a panel of experts in discussing the themes in the report and the opportunities and implications of greenhouse gas removal for Australia.
This short video provides an introduction to greenhouse gas removal from the atmosphere.
