Full, Johannes; et al. (2021): A New Perspective for Climate Change Mitigation—Introducing Carbon-Negative Hydrogen Production from Biomass with Carbon Capture and Storage (HyBECCS)

Full, Johannes; Merseburg, Steffen; Miehe, Robert; Sauer, Alexander (2021): A New Perspective for Climate Change Mitigation—Introducing Carbon-Negative Hydrogen Production from Biomass with Carbon Capture and Storage (HyBECCS). In Sustainability 13 (7), p. 4026. DOI: 10.3390/su13074026.

"This paper introduces for the first time a novel concept for the production of hydrogen with net negative emissions. The derived concept combines biohydrogen production using biotechnological or thermochemical processes with carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage."

Zhou, Hewen; et al. (2021): Prospective contributions of biomass pyrolysis to China’s 2050 carbon reduction and renewable energy goals

Zhou, Hewen; Bartocci, Pietro; Fantozzi, Francesco; Mašek, Ondřej; Agblevor, Foster; Wei, Zhiyu et al. (2021): Prospective contributions of biomass pyrolysis to China’s 2050 carbon reduction and renewable energy goals. In nature communications.

"While bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) may need years to mature, this study focuses on developing a ready-to-implement biomass intermediate pyrolysis poly-generation (BIPP) technology to produce a potentially stable form of biochar, a medium for carbon storage, and to provide a significant source of valuable biofuels, especially pyrolysis gas."

Babin, Alexandre; et al. (2021): Potential and challenges of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage as a carbon-negative energy source: A review

Babin, Alexandre; Vaneeckhaute, Céline; Iliuta, Maria C. (2021): Potential and challenges of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage as a carbon-negative energy source: A review. In Biomass and Bioenergy 146, p. 105968. DOI: 10.1016/j.biombioe.2021.105968.

"As an emerging field, active research and development over the next decades, along with strong policy support, is crucial to ensure that BECCS can be implemented in time because delaying action on climate change reduces the likelihood of successfully meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement. Consequently, this critical review aims at establishing the upcoming challenges facing the implementation of BECCS and the pathways to address them, along with highlighting the advancements in the field over the last decade."

Stenzel, Fabian; et al. (2021): Irrigation of biomass plantations may globally increase water stress more than climate change

Stenzel, Fabian; Greve, Peter; Lucht, Wolfgang; Tramberend, Sylvia; Wada, Yoshihide; Gerten, Dieter (2021): Irrigation of biomass plantations may globally increase water stress more than climate change. In Nat Comms 12 (1), pp. 1–9. DOI: 10.1038/s41467-021-21640-3.

"Here we quantitatively assess potential side effects of BECCS with respect to water stress by disentangling the associated drivers (irrigated biomass plantations, climate, land use patterns) using comprehensive global model simulations."

Fuss, Sabine; Johnsson, Filip (2021): The BECCS Implementation Gap–A Swedish Case Study

Fuss, Sabine; Johnsson, Filip (2021): The BECCS Implementation Gap–A Swedish Case Study. In Front. Energy Res. 8, p. 385. DOI: 10.3389/fenrg.2020.553400.

"We review the role that BECCS could play in reaching net-zero targets based on the existing 1.5°C scenarios. Such scenarios presented in the literature typically have BECCS at a GtCO2 per year scale. We also assess the potentials and obstacles for BECCS implementation at the national level, applying Sweden as a case study."
