Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR), when paired with extensive emissions reductions, is a mitigation strategy to limit warming to 1.5°C as it removes legacy carbon emissions from the atmosphere by augmenting natural processes on ocean and land.
However, in order to meet climate goals, CDR must scale 30 times its present capacity by 2030, which is estimated to require an annual global investment of 1.13 billion USD/year for research and development.
