The Energy White Paper, Powering our Net Zero Future (CP 337), published in December 2020 by HM Government, suggests that negative emission as: ‘Achieved by removing greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, for example, through direct air capture or bio-energy production with carbon capture.’
Keeping 1.5°C Alive: Closing the Gap in the 2020s, version 1.0, published by the Energy Transitions Commission in September 2021, defines negative emissions (or net negative emissions) as a term: ‘…used for the case where the combination of all sector CO2 emissions plus carbon removals results in an absolute negative (and thus a reduction in the stock of atmospheric CO2).’
