Engineered Carbon Dioxide Removal in a Net-Zero Canada Opportunities and challenges for non-biological CDR deployment

Publication April 13, 2023- By Carson Fong, Scott MacDougall
Canada made a commitment under an international climate treaty called the Paris Agreement to reduce emissions by 40-45 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030. We also said we would achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. Net-zero can be achieved with early, deep and sustained reductions of direct emissions, and then tackling the remaining hard-to-reduce emissions with additional tools like carbon dioxide removal (CDR).
