Diarmaid Clery joins the FAB-GGR team at the University of East Anglia to work on the second stakeholder workshop and our policy brief outputs. Diarmaid has submitted his PhD in chemistry and engineering at the University of Leeds where he worked on the impact of biomass combustion on amine sorbents.
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.
