Clair Gough, Mirjam Röder and Nem Vaughan co-authored a paper with Tyndall Centre colleagues published in Global Sustainability on the six key challenges to using BECCS as a keystone technology in pursuit of 1.5C.
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.
Nem Vaughan is a co-author on a paper describing the new CMIP6 endorsed Carbon Dioxide Removal Model Intercomparison Project led by Dr David Keller, Dr Andrew Lenton, Dr Vivian Scott and Nem Vaughan. The open access paper describes the experimental set up of the project.
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.
