Marine carbon dioxide removal (mCDR) will be an essential component of a future negative emissions industry, which alongside emissions reduction is necessary to restrict climate warming to less than 2°C and avoid global, irreversible, and catastrophic changes caused by this temperature rise.

This program seeks to accelerate the development of the mCDR industry through the development of scalable Measurement, Reporting, and Validation (MRV) technologies. ARPA-E anticipates two Technical Areas (TAs) under this FOA: marine carbon sensors and ocean carbon flux models. Teams may apply to one or both TAs.

FOA: DE-FOA-0002989
