Call for evidence launched on greenhouse gas removal methods


Evidence is sought to strengthen the government’s evidence base on greenhouse gas removal methods and helps to inform future policy in this area.

Greenhouse gas removals (GGRs) are likely to make a contribution to the UK’s net zero ambition, but many methods are not yet ready to be deployed at scale.

Therefore, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) invites evidence and views on:

  • the viability of different GGRs in the UK – including technology readiness, cost, deployment potential, lifecycle emissions, and wider constraints to deployment
  • the role of government in addressing market barriers and stimulating the development and deployment of GGRs
  • supporting policies needed to enable deployment and scale-up, such as a robust framework for monitoring, reporting and verification of negative emissions

This builds on the Vivid Economics study on greenhouse gas removal policy options, published by BEIS in 2019.

The government welcomes views and information from a wide range of stakeholders with an interest in GGRs, such as: developers, researchers, investors, academics, social scientists, accreditation bodies and think tanks.
