Modelling bio-sequestration to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

11th April 2014

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), Bio-energy with carbon capture and storage

The focus of this study is on the role that bioenergy carbon capture and storage (BECCS) technology can play in achieving long term ambitions to reduce emissions. This report describes the assumptions and methods used to determine the impact of adoption of BECCS in the power sector and for large applications entailing direct combustion. A number of scenarios were modelled with and without the availability of BECCS to determine the relative contribution of BECCS. The results of the modelling are discussed in this report.
