Negri, Valentina; et al. (2021): Life cycle optimization of BECCS supply chains in the European Union

Negri, Valentina; Galán-Martín, Ángel; Pozo, Carlos; Fajardy, Mathilde; Reiner, David M.; Mac Dowell, Niall; Guillén-Gosálbez, Gonzalo (2021): Life cycle optimization of BECCS supply chains in the European Union. In Applied Energy 298, p. 117252. DOI: 10.1016/j.apenergy.2021.117252.

"We here explore the complexity of the infrastructures involved in realizing a large-scale system and the sequestration potential of bioenergy in Europe. Starting from a minimum cost scenario, we develop cost-optimal solutions that minimize the environmental impact of the overall BECCS supply chain according to the life cycle impact assessment methodology."

Phys.org: Global BECCS potential is largely constrained by sustainable irrigation

"A new collaborative study led by researchers from the National Institute for Environmental Studies, Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, Ritsumeikan University, and Kyoto University found that although unlimited irrigation could increase global BECCS potential (via the increase of bioenergy production) by 60-71% by the end of this century, sustainably constrained irrigation would increase it by only 5-6%."

Shahbaz, Muhammad; et al. (2021): A comprehensive review of biomass based thermochemical conversion technologies integrated with CO2 capture and utilisation within BECCS networks

Shahbaz, Muhammad; AlNouss, Ahmed; Ghiat, Ikhlas; Mckay, Gordon; Mackey, Hamish; Elkhalifa, Samar; Al-Ansari, Tareq (2021): A comprehensive review of biomass based thermochemical conversion technologies integrated with CO2 capture and utilisation within BECCS networks. In Resources, Conservation and Recycling 173, p. 105734. DOI: 10.1016/j.resconrec.2021.105734.

"The potential for thermochemical conversion processes (combustion, gasification, pyrolysis, and liquefaction) to manifest within BECCS systems is analysed, in addition to their integration potential with carbon dioxide capture methods. Outcomes suggest that gasification and combustion processes when integrated with CO2 capture and storage (CCS), within combine heat and power (CHP) configurations, biomass integrated gasification combine cycle (BIGCC) and chemical looping cycle (CLC) are mature technologies."
