Marine Carbon Dioxide Removal (mCDR): Advancements in Technology, Commercialization and Funding Opportunities

Christina Janulis and Morgan Bennett-Smith Energy Solutions

Marine carbon dioxide removal (mCDR) approaches leverage biological and chemical processes in the ocean to increase atmospheric CO₂ removal and storage. While these approaches — ranging from coastal wetland restoration to electrochemical CO₂ removal — have potential to help us reach the Paris Agreement temperature goal, most have not been tested or deployed at scale.

400+ (and counting) scientists worldwide have signed an open letter advocating for responsible mCDR research and development to supplement ongoing efforts to cut global greenhouse gas emissions. Experts say the mCDR field will need significant capital and policy innovation, as well as a diverse portfolio of solutions, to encourage technological advancement and resolve uncertainties. In light of recent public and private funding opportunities, several organizations have published on the need for robust regulatory frameworks and multi-level governance for all pathways forward.
