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.
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.
Clair Gough and Nem Vaughan along with Tyndall Manchester colleague Sarah Mander published a guest blog on Carbon Brief discussing the six key policy challenges for BECCS. The blog is based on a paper written with colleagues published in Global Sustainability in June.
