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.
Nem Vaughan, Clair Gough, Mirjam Röder and Anna Harper presented their latest research at the first International Conference on Negative Emissions at Chalmers University, Gothenburg, Sweden. This piece in Carbon Brief provides an overview of the discussions at the conference.
Dr Laurie Waller joins the FAB-GGR team at the University of East Anglia to work on the societal and political aspects of feasibility of large-scale afforestation and BECCS for greenhouse gas removal. Laurie previously worked at the Technical University of Munich in Germany.
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.
