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.
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.
