Designing a CDR assessment framework together
At the end of September, researchers from all of CDRterra’s consortia met at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) and continued to work together on an assessment framework for the various methods of CO₂ removal. This should help to determine the ecological, techno-economic, political and societal potential of CDR methods for Germany as accurately and realistically as possible.
In addition to the exchange within the scientific community, we at CDRterra also seek the dialogue with stakeholders from various sectors of society. Thus, another workshop on the CDR assessment framework was held with a diverse group of stakeholders. In addition to information about the research program and the individual consortia, the focus was on an exchange about different perspectives, positions and needs. We are pleased with the start of this dialogue and thank all participants for their contribution:
