MRV tools & techniques for greenhouse gas removal – Funding Comp.

This is a Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) competition funded by Innovate UK as part of the Strategic Priorities Fund (SPF) Greenhouse Gas Removal Demonstrators programme.

The aim of the competition is to deliver innovative monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) tools, technologies and techniques that assess the effectiveness, integrity and longevity of land-based greenhouse gas removal. The results of which will increase the credibility, confidence and uptake of land based greenhouse gas removal techniques.

Any adoption and implementation of a solution from this competition would be subject to a separate, possibly competitive, procurement exercise. This competition does not cover the purchase of any solution.

Your Project

Your project must help in quantifying the greenhouse gases sequestered through land based GGR and understanding their permanence and security. This must be by effective MRV tools, technologies, and techniques that show how land based GGR will contribute to the UK reaching its net zero greenhouse gas emissions targets by 2050.

In this phase 1 project you must demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed tool, technology or technique for MRV of greenhouse gas sequestration. The solution must be applied to one, or multiple, land based greenhouse gas removal techniques or sites.

You can use a variety of tools, technologies and techniques to assist and enable robust MRV of land based GGR techniques. For example:

  • digital solutions
  • remote sensing or monitoring
  • databases
  • online tools
  • measurement tools
  • accreditation schemes

This list is not exhaustive and we welcome any proposals that can make a significant contribution to the MRV of land based GGR.

Project size

Phase 1 projects can range in size up to total costs of £75,000, inclusive of VAT.

Competition opens: Monday 27 June 2022

Competition closes: Wednesday 7 September 2022 11:00am
