Synthesising existing knowledge on the feasibility of BECCS (D1a)

There is a growing and significant dependence on biomass energy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) in future emission scenarios that do not exceed 2°C warming; over a hundred of the 116 scenarios associated with concentrations between 430–480 ppm CO2 depend on BECCS to deliver global […]

Planetary limits to BECCS negative emissions (D2.a)

This study focuses on the planetary limits to BECCS from first generation annual bio-energy (BE) crops coupled with Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).

The acknowledged threat of many damaging aspects of climate change over the next century and beyond has prompted research into ways to reduce and […]

Achieving emissions consistent with a 50% chance of remaining below 2°C by 2100 will require large changes in the energy system over the 21st century, including increased use of renewables and significant retirement of fossil fuel generation capacity. Delaying global coordinated mitigation action towards the 2°C […]
