Summary

The public is invited to attend the first meeting of a new study to develop a research and development agenda for carbon dioxide removal (CDR) and carbon sequestration approaches on Wednesday, May 24, 2017 in Washington D.C. (or via WebEx). The committee of experts who will conduct the study are tasked with identifying the research needed to assess the benefits, risks, and sustainable scale potential for various approaches and increase their commercial viability.

The open session begins at 1:00 p.m. EDT with a welcome and overview from Committee Chair, Steve Pacala of Princeton University, followed by a quick review of the findings of the National Academies 2015 report, Carbon Dioxide Removal and Reliable Sequestration. The sponsors of the study will share their perspective on what the study should accomplish. From 4:45 until 5:30 p.m., attendees will be invited to make comments to the committee on such topics as what they see as the most urgent research needs, how this study can be made most useful, and related issues that might affect communities.
