Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) is a promising class of technologies for carbon dioxide (CO2) removal and consists of the capture and permanent geological storage of CO2 stemming from biomass transformation or combustion. Several industrial sectors can implement this technology, including the biofuel sector which is predominantly made up of bioethanol production. Bioethanol is one of the few renewable alternatives to oil and gas-based liquid fuel, with which it can be easily blended to be used as a transportation fuel.
As countries seek to decarbonise transport, demand for bioethanol is set to grow globally. By integrating CCS into the production process for bioethanol, negative emissions can be created. It is forecast that a significant proportion of the world’s bioethanol production will come from developing countries (International Energy Agency, 2018).
This brief focuses on how the production of bioethanol with CCS can be supported by climate finance providers, and the pivotal role Brazil can play in facilitating this process.
Given that electricity generation in Romania is primarily based on coal, implementing CCS would greatly reduce CO2 emissions while keeping coal-fired power plants operational. This financial scenarios report describes the optimum solution to financing a large-scale CCS project in Romania. It considered the challenges of finding and securing financing sources for the project. The existing financing sources, at European Union (EU) and national level, were analysed in terms of financing structure of the project, project eligibility, origin of financing (public/private), availability of funding, availability in time, and degree of certainty. Three scenarios were created, based on the prospected funding sources for CCS projects. A qualitative assessment was performed and, based on this assessment, the optimum scenario was chosen for the GETICA CCS Demonstration project.
