To mitigate climate change, carbon capture is necessary. In addition to the energy transition towards renewable sources and green house gasses emission reduction, CO2 capture from flue gas and its sinks, including air and the ocean, must be promoted. By 2030, in less than 8 years, the global carbon capture capacity must increase 100 × (from the current ca. 40 MtCO2 yr−1 to 4 GtCO2 yr−1). To meet the net zero carbon goals of 2050, sustainable, scalable, inexpensive technologies that fit in an electrified industry and have a small footprint are needed for carbon capture. Currently, such technologies do not exist. In the framework of the necessary carbon capture, and the opportunities for electrochemical (ocean) CO2 capture, five research questions are defined and addressed in this thesis...
