CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency, has announced the launch of its $20 million research program, CarbonLock, to develop new and innovative ways to remove carbon from the atmosphere and permanently lock it away.

CarbonLock is one of a number of programs in CSIRO called Future Science Platforms (FSPs) aimed at discovering future breakthroughs in new and emerging areas of science.

It will focus on how Australia can create negative emissions technologies (NETs) to remove and store carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. They are an essential part of the toolkit for addressing climate change and reducing global greenhouse gas emissions.
