Call for nomination of experts to Scoping Meeting for Methodology Report on Carbon Dioxide Removal Technologies and Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is calling on its member governments and observer organizations to nominate experts to the meeting that will draft the outline of the Methodology Report on the Carbon Dioxide Removal Technologies and Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage. Focal points are expected to submit nominations by midnight CEST on Friday, 19 July 2024.


The meeting is being organized by the IPCC Task Force on National Greenhouse Gas Inventories (TFI) and is tentatively scheduled for the second half of October this year.

Nominated experts for the meeting should have relevant expertise about the estimation of sinks or sources from:
Direct air carbon dioxide capture and storage (DACCS)
Bioenergy carbon capture and storage 3. Carbon dioxide capture, utilization, and storage
Concrete carbonation
Enhanced weathering
Ocean alkalinity enhancement
Blue carbon management in coastal wetlands
Soil carbon sequestration in crop and grasslands
Peatland and coastal wetland restoration
Ocean fertilization
Wastewater treatment/ wastewater alkalinity
Other carbon dioxide removal technologies not specified above

On carbon capture, utilization and storage expertise, those to be nominated should have expertise in relation to the estimation of sources or sinks from:
Carbon dioxide capture
Carbon dioxide transport
Carbon dioxide injection
Carbon dioxide storage
Carbon dioxide use:

a. Enhanced oil, gas, coal bed methane recovery
b. Production of chemicals
c. Production of other products

The Working Group III contribution to the Sixth Assessment Report found that “the deployment of carbon dioxide removal to counterbalance hard-to-abate residual emissions is unavoidable if net zero CO2 or GHG emissions are to be achieved. The IPCC noted that a review of its 2006 Guidelines for the preparation of national inventories is timely and at its 60th Session requested its Task Force on National Greenhouse Gas Inventories to develop a Methodology Report on Carbon Dioxide Removal Technologies, Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage. This scoping meeting will draft the outline for this Methodology Report to be considered by the Panel in early 2025. The Methodology Report itself is expected to be finalized by the end of 2027
