Short Typology of Carbon Dioxide Removals

How to best differentiate methods and technologies for establishing and enhancing carbon sinks?


On 30 November 2022, the Commission proposed a voluntary EU carbon removal certification framework (CRCF) in order to promote carbon dioxide removal (CDR) through natural and technical approaches and spur investments into the respective technologies.

This paper analyzes CDR typologies, compares them to CDR in the CRCF and identifies room for improvements. The aim is to stimulate the public debate by highlighting key aspects and implications of CDR activities that should be taken into account in implementing the framework and in future CDR policy-making.
