Astley Hastings, Brett Day, Anna Harper, Jason Chilvers, Tim Lenton, Samira Garcia-Frietes and Diarmaid Clery attended the two-day GGR programme meeting at Royal Holloway University.
The project team were in Manchester to share our latest findings across the project over the last year and discuss research and publications that will take place in Year 3. A number of our advisory panel members were able to join us offering constructive feedback and unique insights on our work.
Nem Vaughan gave oral evidence to the HoC Select Committee for Science & Technology chaired by Norman Lamb MP about Greenhouse Gas Removal as part of their inquiry on the Clean Growth Strategy. The video recording and written transcripts can be found here.
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.
Nathan Owen joins the FAB-GGR team at the University of Exeter to work on the UK scale modelling of ecosystem impacts of afforestation and BECCS.Nathan has a PhD in Mathematics and has applied this to projects at the Land, Environment, Economics and Policy Institute, building a connected set of economic and environmental models for the UK and a decision support tool.
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.
Nem Vaughan, Clair Gough, Mirjam Röder and Anna Harper submitted written evidence to the Climate Change Committee’s Call for Evidence on Net Zero, summarizing the findings of their recent papers.
Nem Vaughan was on a panel of experts for a public discussion following on from the UK premier of the film, Anote’s Ark, held at the Science Museum, London.
Johanna has a new position in the School of International Development at the University of East Anglia as a Lecturer in Environment & International Development. Johanna has led the analysis of the first stakeholder workshop and will continue her work with FAB-GGR through supervision of the new post-doctoral research associate.
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.
