Fajardy, M.; Chiquier, S.; Mac Dowell, N. (2018): Investigating the BECCS resource nexus. Delivering sustainable negative emissions. In: Energy Environ. Sci. 11, S. 1581. DOI: 10.1039/C8EE01676C.
"In this study, we present a series of thought experiments, using the Modelling and Optimisation of Negative Emissions Technologies (MONET) framework, to provide insight into the combinations of biomass feedstock, origin, land type, and transport route, to meet a given CO2 removal target. The optimal structure of an international BECCS supply chain was found to vary both quantitatively and qualitatively as the focus shifted from conserving water, land or biomass, to maximising energy generated, with the water use in particular increasing threefold in the land and biomass use minimisation scenario, as compared to the water minimisation scenario."
