The purpose of this conference series is to bring together a wide range of scientists, experts and stakeholders, in order to engage in various aspects of research relating to negative CO2 emissions. This will include various negative emission technologies, climate modelling, climate policies and incentives. The main topics of the conference, around which the sessions will be built, include:</p><ul><li>​<span style="font-size:14px"><span style="background-color:initial">BECCS</span></span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Biospheric storage</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Cross-cutting sessions</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Direct air capture</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Enhanced weathering</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Modeling</span></li> <li><span style="background-color:initial">Ocean alkalization</span></li></ul> <span></span> <div><span style="font-size:14px"></span><span></span><div><span style="font-size:14px"><strong>Background</strong></span></div> <div><span style="font-size:14px">The objective of the Paris Agreement is to limit global warming to well below 2ºC, and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5ºC. The carbon budget is the amount of carbon dioxide that we can emit while still limiting global temperature rise to a given level, for example 1.5ºC.</span></div></div> <div><br /></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial;font-size:14px"></span><strong>Read more and sign up to the conference:</strong><br /><a href=""><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/icgen.gif" alt="" />The 2nd International Conference on Negative CO2 Emissions​</a><br /></div>
