Favero, Alice; et al. 2020: “Forests: Carbon Sequestration, Biomass Energy, or Both?”

Favero, Alice, Adam Daigneault, and Brent Sohngen. 2020: “Forests: Carbon Sequestration, Biomass Energy, or Both?” Science Advances 6 (13): eaay6792. https://doi.org/10.1126/sciadv.aay6792.

"There is a continuing debate over the role that woody bioenergy plays in climate mitigation. This paper clarifies this controversy and illustrates the impacts of woody biomass demand on forest harvests, prices, timber management investments and intensity, forest area, and the resulting carbon balance under different climate mitigation policies."

Call for participation: Pre-ACT Webinar Series

24. March - 27. May 2020, online

"The Pre-ACT project will during the spring of 2020 arrange a series of webinars summarizing important findings from nearly three years of research on topics ranging from pre-injection modelling/experimental studies and novel monitoring concepts, to conformance verification strategies, decision making guidelines, and CO2 storage case studies in the North Sea. The webinars are open to all and include a Q&A part, hopefully being an efficient means of communication in times of travel/event restrictions."
