Implications for food security of large scale BECCS deployment (D2c)

Modern agriculture faces considerable challenges with many people currently lacking easy access to food or suffering malnourishment. Alleviation of this depends on food accessibility as well as availability. Global demand for crop production is rising driven by an increasing population, a shift in diet towards meat and dairy […]

What are the implications of temporarily overshooting a long-term temperature goal of 2°C? Policy card A3 D2b

AVOID 2 and the IPCC have assessed future scenarios where global average temperatures ‘overshoot’ 2°C of warming before returning below that level. In the models that generated these scenarios, reversing more than 0.1°C of overshoot by 2100 requires large-scale use of carbon dioxide removal […]

How plausible is a rapid global increase in the deployment of Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS)? Policy Card D1a D1b

Most future scenarios of the energy systems needed to avoid dangerous climate change involve the removal of atmospheric carbon dioxide later this century (referred to as a ‘negative emissions’ technology). BECCS is currently the only technology with the potential to remove carbon from the atmosphere at a global […]

How can Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) contribute to meeting 2 degrees? Policy card D2a

Most computer modelled scenarios that limit global warming to below 2°C rely on some amount of CO2 removal from the atmosphere later this century.1 BECCS is a process that has the potential to remove carbon from the atmosphere. If deployed at large-scale it could result […]
