Nem Vaughan and Emma Littleton are co-authors on a paper led by David Keller published in Current Climate Change Reports. The paper provides a review of the current understanding of the impact of carbon dioxide removal on the carbon cycle.
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.
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.
