CO2RE is the UK’s national multidisciplinary research hub on Greenhouse Gas Removal (GGR), working with five demonstrator projects around the UK that are each investigating a specific GGR method.

This story, published by CO2RE and Imperial College London with support from the Grantham Institute, takes you on a journey through a range of techniques to remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air. Written by George Hope and Philippa Westbury, it references some of the demonstrators who are at the forefront of the field.

The 9 ways:
1. Protect and restore peatlands
2. Use machines to capture CO₂ from the air
3. Harness the power of the ocean
4. Create and manage woodlands
5. Make biochar and use it in agriculture
6. Use wood in construction
7. Crush basalt from quarries and add it to soil
8. Change agricultural practices to improve soils
9. Grow crops for energy and store the CO₂
