Freer, Muir; et al. (2021): Carbon Optimal Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage Supply Chain Modelling: How Far Is Too Far?

Freer, Muir, Clair Gough, Andrew Welfle, and Amanda Lea-Langton (2021): Carbon Optimal Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage Supply Chain Modelling: How Far Is Too Far? Sustainable Energy Technologies and Assessments 47 (October): 101406. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.seta.2021.101406.

"The methodology presented in this analysis provides a useful heuristic that can aid the carbon-efficient deployment of BECCS in the UK and has the potential to be replicated for other countries or calculate carbon-efficient trans-national BECCS supply chains."

Shafiee, Roxana T. (2021): Blue Carbon

Shafiee, Roxana T. (2021): Blue Carbon. SPICe Briefing / Pàipear-ullachaidh SPICe. The Scottish Parliament.

"This briefing outlines the current understanding of carbon captured and stored in Scotland's coastal and marine environment, known as blue carbon. This briefing outlines the known threats to blue carbon stores, and compares their carbon storage capacity to Scotland's wellknown terrestrial carbon stores: peatland and forestry. In addition, this briefing explores Scottish policy areas relevant to the protection of blue carbon stores on the basis of their contributions to biodiversity and climate change mitigation."
