Negative Emissions: “Only nature-based solutions can master the job”

An Interview with Professor Jelle Bijma about enhanced weathering

On my journey to do “something with enhanced weathering” I met Professor Dr. Jelle Bijma. Both of us are quite interested in the potential of enhanced weathering for CO2 removal, especially applying the concept to farmland. For almost 30 years Jelle has been affiliated with the Alfred-Wegener-Institut, Helmholtz Zentrum für Polar- und Meeresforschung, Germany’s leading Institute for ocean and polar science. He is heading the section “marine biogeosciences”, where he studies the global carbon cycle and paleoclimatology.

A few days ago I had the chance to talk to him about the climate crisis and the enhanced weathering project that we are currently setting up together with several other people.

You can read the interview on the blog of my climate startup Carbon Drawdown Initiative.
