Stenzel, F.; Gerten, D.; Werner, C.; Jägermeyr, J. (2019): Freshwater requirements of large-scale bioenergy plantations for limiting global warming to 1.5 °C. In: Environ. Res. Lett. 14 (8), S. 84001. DOI: 10.1088/1748-9326/ab2b4b.
"This paper provides a first-order quantification of the biophysical potentials of BECCS as a negative emission technology contribution to reaching the 1.5 °C warming target, as constrained by associated water availabilities and requirements. Using a global biosphere model, we analyze the availability of freshwater for irrigation of BPs designed to meet the projected NEs to fulfill the 1.5 °C target, spatially explicitly on areas not reserved for ecosystem conservation or agriculture."
