Explore the Greenhouse Gas Removal Demonstrators (GGR-D) Programme 

UKRI is funding CO2RE and five interdisciplinary GGR Demonstrator projects, each researching a GGR method over the next four years. 

The results will be used to shape government decision-making on the most effective technologies to help the UK tackle climate change and reach net zero. Find out about each GGR project via the interactive map and by watching the video below.
