Biomass negative emissions technology ‘could be commercially viable’

Biomass with CCS could remove millions of tonnes CO2 from the atmosphere and supply a substantial portion of energy demand given adequate government support, says the ETI

Enough sustainable feedstocks could be found for UK BECCS to remove 55mtCO2 a year from the atmosphere by 2050, says ETI. Photograph: Andrei Merkulov/123RFNegative emissions technology based on biomass energy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) could become a commercial reality in the UK as long as it gets government support, a report has concluded.

The report from the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI), published on 8 November, finds that BECCS, which removes CO2 from the atmosphere, is the cheapest negative emissions technology and should therefore be an integral part of a new domestic CCS strategy.
