At a global level, aggressive climate action plans increasingly require substantial negative emission technologies, such as Direct Air Capture (DAC); Biomass Energy Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS); biochar and soil carbon sequestration; CO2 utilization in chemicals and polymers; and long-lived bioproducts such and mass timber construction. This session will discuss the technical, biophysical and socio-political opportunities and challenges associated with implementing these technologies at a gigaton scale. Workshop participants will discuss priority needs for research and development, as well as near term opportunities for demonstration and deployment.
