Anna Harper published a guest blog on Carbon Brief discussing the net carbon impact of large amounts of BECCS to meet 1.5°C targets. The blog is based on a paper written with colleagues published in Nature Communications this month.
Diarmaid Clery joins the FAB-GGR team at the University of East Anglia to work on the second stakeholder workshop and our policy brief outputs. Diarmaid has submitted his PhD in chemistry and engineering at the University of Leeds where he worked on the impact of biomass combustion on amine sorbents.
Mirjam Röder and colleagues published a paper on understanding the timing and variation of greenhouse gas emissions from forest bioenergy systems. Their work finds that the mitigation potential depends on forest management and what products are coming from the whole forest. The paper is published in the journal Biomass and Bioenergy.
Clair Gough is the lead editor and Nem Vaughan a co-editor of new book by Wiley. In ‘Biomass Energy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS): unlocking negative emissions’ leading experts from bioenergy and CCS are brought together to explore BECCS from a range of perspectives. Available here.
