Mirjam has a new position at Aston University, Birmingham and will continue her work with FAB-GGR on the life cycle analysis of afforestation and BECCS supply chains and the leadership of work package three.
Anna Harper is the lead author of a paper [http://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-018-05340-z] published in Nature Communications. The paper concludes that carbon removed from the atmosphere through BECCS could easily be offset by losses due to land use change depending upon where biomass is grown.
The project team were in Exeter to hear about the work conducted in Year 1 and discuss research and publications that will take place in Year 2. Four of our advisory panel members were able to join us offering constructive feedback and unique insights on our work.
