UK government opens BECCS funding opportunity

UK government opens BECCS funding opportunity

August 24, 2022 |

In the UK, the UK government has opened a funding opportunity for power BECCS projects wanting to take part in Track-1 of the CCUS Cluster Sequencing Process. The 2021 Net Zero Strategy outlined the role that engineered greenhouse gas removal (GGR) technologies would need to play in supporting decarbonisation by 2050. The purpose of GGRs […]

UK’s net-zero carbon proposal for 2050 sees big role for BECCS and aviation biofuel

UK’s net-zero carbon proposal for 2050 sees big role for BECCS and aviation biofuel

May 2, 2019 |

In the UK, the UK Committee on Climate Change’s new report seeking to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 sees CCS tied in with bioenergy production as key, as well as 21TWh of biofuels for aviation, roughly between 5% and 10% of 2017 aviation fuel consumption. That switch to aviation biofuels is estimated to displace […]

UK’s Energy Technologies Institute says bioenergy with CCS can provide negative emissions

UK’s Energy Technologies Institute says bioenergy with CCS can provide negative emissions

November 8, 2016 |

In the UK, the Energy Technologies Institute says in its new report that bioenergy technologies when combined with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) can deliver negative emissions (net removal of CO2 from the atmosphere) whilst producing energy in the form of electricity, heat, gaseous and liquid fuels. Negative emissions provide important emissions ‘headroom’ as the UK transitions towards a low-carbon energy system, […]
