The Greenhouse Gas Removal Demonstrators programme will assess sustainable routes for large-scale removal of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, allowing the UK to take a major step towards achieving net-zero emissions, and placing the UK in a leading position to benefit from the £400 billion future global market in greenhouse gas removal.
The funding is part of the interdisciplinary £31.5 million Strategic Priority Fund (SPF) Wave 2 Greenhouse Gas Removal Demonstrators Programme, which is a UKRI initiative involving AHRC, BBSRC, ESRC, EPSRC, NERC and Innovate UK.
The UKRI Greenhouse Gas Removal call is now open and is made up of two calls:
- Greenhouse Gas Removal Demonstrator call (lead by BBSRC) - https://bbsrc.ukri.org/funding/filter/2019-greenhouse-gas-removal-demonstrators/
- Greenhouse Gas Removal Directorate Hub call (lead by NERC)- https://nerc.ukri.org/research/funded/programmes/ggrd/
