Sandbag (2019): Playing with Fire. An assessment of company plans to burn biomass in EU coal power stations.

Sandbag (2019): Playing with Fire. An assessment of company plans to burn biomass in EU coal power stations.

"This report assesses the possible growth in biomass burning across Europe as a result of a fleet of planned coal-to-biomass power plant conversions. We map every project and estimate the scale of the threat to global forests."

Pröll, T.; et al. (2019): Biomass-Based Negative Emission Technology Options with Combined Heat and Power Generation

Pröll, Tobias, and Florian Zerobin. 2019. “Biomass-Based Negative Emission Technology Options with Combined Heat and Power Generation.” Mitigation and Adaptation Strategies for Global Change 24 (7): 1307–24. https://doi.org/10.1007/s11027-019-9841-4.

"The results show that both bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) and biochar qualify as negative emission technologies (NETs) and that there is an energy-based performance advantage of BECCS over biochar because of the unreleased fuel energy in the biochar case."

Kuparinen, K.; et al. (2019): Biomass-Based Carbon Capture and Utilization in Kraft Pulp Mills

Kuparinen, Katja, Esa Vakkilainen, and Tero Tynjälä. 2019. “Biomass-Based Carbon Capture and Utilization in Kraft Pulp Mills.” Mitigation and Adaptation Strategies for Global Change 24 (7): 1213–30. https://doi.org/10.1007/s11027-018-9833-9.

‌"In this study, total biomass-based CO2 capture and storage potential (BECCS) and potential to implement capture and utilization of biomass-based CO2 (BECCU) in kraft pulp mills were estimated by analyzing the impacts of the processes on the operation of two modern reference mills, a Nordic softwood kraft pulp mill with integrated paper production and a Southern eucalyptus kraft pulp mill."
