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.
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.
