Carbon removal technologies are seeing "growth across the board" and "record-breaking investments," says the executive director of the US-based Carbon Business Council, Ben Rubin.

That's because a wide variety of carbon management approaches are needed to reach the "gigaton scale" of removals recommended by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and other scientific bodies to decarbonize the global economy. The Carbon Business Council represents 75 member companies working on multiple approaches to carbon management.
