Carbon Removal Forum

The Carbon Removal Forum is a campus-wide event to harness knowledge and capacity toward developing an Iowa State University program in agriculturally-based carbon removal that could contribute toward mitigating climate change.

Postponed until fall 2020.

Check back here for rescheduled date.

Carbon reduction vs. carbon removal

Carbon reduction — reduce the rate at which carbon dioxide enters the atmosphere.

Carbon removal — remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Why should you attend

The forum will create an open dialogue with students, faculty, and concerned citizens. The outcome of the forum will be an action-based, campus-wide plan to address agriculturally-based carbon removal in the research, education, and extension missions of the university.

Who is invited

Students, faculty, and concerned citizens who would like to contribute towards solving climate change problems and are interested in learning about carbon removal practices and technologies.


Attendance will be free but registration will be requested.


This forum is being organized by Iowa State’s Bioeconomy Institute and supported by the Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost.
