Ocean-based carbon removal solutions to combat the climate crisis
Public panel discussion at AAAS Annual Meeting, Friday, February 16, 2024.
February 2, 2024

A leading panel of experts will discuss the carbon reduction potential, possible impacts, and advances in ocean-based carbon dioxide removal technologies, and the role of responsible R&D to ensure the safety of this emerging sector.

The best available science makes clear that to reach the climate goals set forth in the Paris Agreement will require both decarbonization and removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere (CDR).

Ocean-based carbon dioxide removal—commonly referred to as marine CDR (mCDR)—is a suite of methods that enhance the ocean’s natural processes to reduce carbon in the atmosphere and safely store it in the ocean.

This panel event is being held at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) 2024 Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado, starting at 10AM on Friday, January 16, 2024. ONC plans to share a recording of this event online and on social media.
