UK National Farmers Union net-zero carbon strategy includes BECCS

UK National Farmers Union net-zero carbon strategy includes BECCS

September 11, 2019 |

In the UK, the National Farmers Union has released its net-zero to 2040 farming strategy which includes a pillar focused on displacing greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels and removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere through bioenergy. The NFU says the combining bioenergy with carbon capture and storage on farms could reduce GHG emissions by […]

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 […]

Stanford researchers lead work on leveraging BECCS for ethanol producers

April 24, 2018 |

In California, researchers at Stanford and other institutions have found new hope for cost-effective carbon capture and sequestration (CCS). Their study, published April 23 in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, runs the numbers on different options for removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere in the U.S. and finds opportunities where it is not […]

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, […]
