“To get to net-zero emissions, we need to have some of what are called “negative emissions” technologies, or things which will suck the CO2 out of the air to compensate for the ongoing release.”

Ten options for negative emissions technologies (Credit: Click to Enlarge.
NETs take more CO2 out of the atmosphere than they put in.  No one single technology can solve climate change, but many have been proposed that could contribute to reducing atmospheric CO2.  Some consider the notion to be a form of geoengineering, and sometimes refer to it as “CDR” (carbon dioxide removal). 

Carbon Brief takes a closer look – in alphabetic order – at 10 of the most frequently proposed NETs, which you can also see in the infographic at the top of the page.
