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."

Bioenergy Insight: 2021 Outlook – “BECCS is critical to achieve net zero”

"Events of 2020 — the COVID-19 pandemic that has killed over two million people and severely impacted the global economy, and extreme weather and natural disasters around the world — have heightened awareness about human impacts on the natural environment. This has galvanised action to tackle the climate crisis and shone a spotlight on solutions that will be crucial in meeting climate targets such as sustainable biomass for power, negative emissions, and bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS)."

Friends of the Earth International: A Leap in the Dark: The Dangers of Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS)

"Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) is a risky, unproven, costly, and dangerous distraction from the urgent and drastic emissions cuts needed to prevent catastrophic climate change. Yet the fossil fuel industry has been keen to present it as the long-awaited magical climate fix, simply because it would enable them to keep on profiting from the destruction of our communities and ecosystems."
