Carbon dioxide removal is an essential tool for achieving global climate goals. The increasing use of technologies that remove and store carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, along with their potential integration into carbon markets, raises questions about who is well-positioned to own these technologies and the compatibility of carbon dioxide removal with carbon markets. Massimo Tavoni, director of the RFF-CMCC European Institute on Economics and the Environment, weighs in on these questions; he also examines the potential effects of carbon dioxide removal on economic inequality. Check out a new paper from Tavoni and coauthors in Nature Climate Change to learn more about the potential risks of integrating carbon dioxide removal into carbon markets.
