Website Geisenheim University, Department of Applied Ecology (Professorship for Research into Climate Impacts)

In a joint project on strategies for CO2 removal from the atmosphere funded by the BMBF (German Federal Ministry of Education and Research), researchers from Geisenheim University (HGU), the University of Hamburg, the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research and the Ithaka Institute will explore synergies of combining two methods of “carbon dioxide removal” (CDR) – the use of biochar and rock flour in agriculture.

The joint project “Pyrogenic carbon and mineral weathering (“PyMiCCS”) for accelerated plant growth and carbon removal and storage” is embedded in the CDRterra research network ( In our subproject 3, the candidate on the HGU side applies methods of crop science (soil science, plant nutrition), greenhouse gas flux measurements, and uses stable isotopes (13C-CO2) to quantify C input and fate in soils.
