Mitigating CO2 Emissions from the Organic Chemical and Plastics Industry

This paper advances the Global Change Analysis Model’s (GCAM) portrayal of chemicals to assess a full set of decarbonization options and identify specific actions that the organic chemical sector can take to reduce emissions.

Virginia Flood Resilience Initiative

This report helps inland areas plan for flood resilience, using geospatial mapping and a flood hazard dashboard to help Virginia communities assess flood risk and preparedness.

State-Level Planning for Decarbonization

The report looks at the unique challenges facing states as they work towards decarbonization and try to balance lower emissions with the energy demands of households and corporations.

The Role of Direct Air Capture and Negative Emissions Technologies

This report assesses direct air capture with carbon storage (DACCS) use relative to other carbon capture methods and examines its side effects for global energy, water, and land systems.

Effects of Direct Air Capture Technology Availability on Power Sector

This study shows how the availability of direct air capture (DAC) affects the quantity of stranded assets – fossil fuels and infrastructure that remains unused – created under the goal of limiting global warming to 1.5°-2°C.

Meeting China’s 2060 Carbon Neutrality Goal

This paper models the use of direct air capture and other negative transmission technologies (NETs) in China to understand the role of NETs in helping China and the international community achieve carbon neutrality by 2060.
