Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory researchers are exploring the effectiveness of enhanced weathering as a climate change solution. The team is employing expertise in advanced sensing, computer modeling, and techno-economic analysis to address key knowledge gaps to deployment.

Berkeley Lab research supports efforts to quickly scale up technologies that prevent carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere, or that remove it from the air once it’s already there. Check out this video to learn about three of these solutions: enhanced weathering, a chemical sponge, and geologic carbon storage.

Berkeley Lab scientists are exploring ways to use carbon from industrial processes and convert it into useful products.
