In Wired: It Might Be Time to Take Methane Removal Seriously

Jackson and other scientists suggest it’s time to think about removing methane from the atmosphere, in addition to cutting back on new emissions…. [They] have argued that the heating effects of methane are chronically undervalued, because current climate policies emphasize long-term temperature goals that extend far beyond the lifetime of a methane molecule. The value […]

In ScienceDirect: Perspectives on removal of atmospheric methane

This article reviews proposed methods for atmospheric methane removal at a climatically significant scale. These methods include enhancement of natural hydroxyl and chlorine sinks, photocatalysis in solar updraft towers, zeolite catalyst in direct air capture devices, and methanotrophic bacteria. Though these are still at an early stage of development, a comparison is provided with some […]

In FastCompany: Everyone’s focused on carbon removal, but don’t forget about methane

“If new methods for methane removal can be proven and scaled up, “it would be extremely powerful,” says Lena Höglund-Isaksson, a senior research scholar at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis. If the concentration of methane in the atmosphere could be cut in half, restoring pre-industrial levels, it could help cool the planet by around […]

In Andrew Revkin’s Sustain What: After COP26 Cheers and Jeers, Some Hopeful Climate and Energy Undercurrents

At Glasgow, attention was centered not just on technologies spotting methane, but also new ways to remove this gas from the atmosphere by accelerating natural processes that break down this potent planet heater. Read this Washington Post op-ed article by Rob Jackson, a longtime methane researcher at Stanford University, and Daphe Wysham, who heads a […]
