The Global CO2 Initiative at University of Michigan and its network leverages existing relationships into a sound foundation for interdisciplinary research at the University and other research and industrial entities.

The Global CO2 Initiative will focus on technologies, processes and policies to increase the rate at which carbon is removed from the global carbon cycle by the equivalent to 10% of current CO2 emissions by 2030 through the identification and support of scalable technologies.

The Techno-Economic Assessment and Life Cycle Assessment Toolkit

The Global CO2 Initiative will build upon the initial efforts of its research partners to establish a global, industry-standard Techno-Economic Analysis and Life Cycle Analysis (TEA / LCA) Toolkit.

This toolkit will serve as the critical framework and foundation for the nascent CO2 removal and utilization management industry to analyze the technologies that may have the most impact and ability to succeed in meeting climate and commercial goals. The TEA/LCA toolkit will elevate and standardize the industry and position it for maximum growth potential in the years ahead.
