The Economist: Investing in Carbon Removal: Demystifying Existing Approaches

"We face a stark reality. We urgently need to slash greenhouse gas emissions to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, but this alone will not be enough to keep global temperatures in line with the Paris Agreement goals."

Brack, Duncan; King, Richard (2020): Managing Land‐based CDR: BECCS, Forests and Carbon Sequestration

Brack, Duncan; King, Richard (2020): Managing Land‐based CDR: BECCS, Forests and Carbon Sequestration. In Global Policy. DOI: 10.1111/1758-5899.12827.

"To date there has been little focus on the optimum strategies for integrating land‐based CDR approaches – under which circumstances forest areas are best left undisturbed, managed for conservation, and/or managed for harvested wood products, and how these options affect the availability of residual feedstocks for BECCS. This paper reviews this debate and suggests appropriate policy measures."

C2G Guest Post: Land-based Carbon Dioxide Removal: as urgent and as difficult a policy challenge as ever

"In our new article Managing Land‐based CDR, we outline three key messages for the policy communities considering the sequestration potentials of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) – the main technology currently considered by climate models – and how these interact with more nature-based solutions such as forest management and afforestation."

Rickels, Wilfried; et al. (2020): The Future of (Negative) Emissions Trading in the European Union

Rickels, Wilfried; Proelss, Alexander; Geden, Oliver; Burhenne, Julian; Fridahl, Mathias (2020): The Future of (Negative) Emissions Trading in the European Union. In Kiel Working Paper (2164).

"This conceptual paper explores various design options for integrating negative emissions technologies (NETs) into the EU ETS. We discuss their potential implications for emissions trading at large and address the specificity of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS); repealing the provision that installations exclusively using biomass are not covered by the ETS Directive, BE(CCS) installations could in principle fall within the scope of the ETS Directive."

Hanssen, S.V.; et al. (2020): The climate change mitigation potential of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage

Hanssen, S. V.; Daioglou, V.; Steinmann, Z. J. N.; Doelman, J. C.; van Vuuren, D. P.; Huijbregts, M. A. J. (2020): The climate change mitigation potential of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage. In Nat. Clim. Chang. DOI: 10.1038/s41558-020-0885-y.

"Here we perform a global spatially explicit analysis of life-cycle GHG emissions for lignocellulosic crop-based BECCS. We show that negative emissions greatly depend on biomass cultivation location, treatment of original vegetation, the final energy carrier produced and the evaluation period considered."
