Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) is a rapidly emerging component of climate policy. In order to trace its struggle onto and up the European Union's climate policy agenda, the authors start by providing a brief overview of CDR-related aspects of the EU’s 2030 Climate and Energy Framework as adopted in 2018 and show that CO2 removal is not entirely new to EU climate policymaking.

The authors then turn to more recent developments, in particular the EU Climate Law and the new ‘Fit for 55’ package under the European Green Deal to explore relevant actors in EU climate policy-making and their (evolving) political positioning towards CDR. On this basis, they conclude with an outlook on plausible future developments in CDR policy.
