Negative emission technologies in Australia



More Information

Meeting the worldʼs climate change target of 2oC will require deep cuts in emissions and, most likely, removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. A new report, “Negative emission technologies”, published by the University of Melbourne, analyses several technologies that could be developed in Australia to contribute to negative emissions of CO2. The potential is exciting. Yet these technologies are mostly at an early stage of development and many questions will need to be answered before they will be deployed.

In this webinar from the Peter Cook Centre for Carbon Capture and Storage Research, and co-hosted by MEI, experts in this field will discuss the report, explore its opportunities and provide answers to some of the key questions.
