Michael Obersteiner looks back on the history of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS).
Hanna-Mari Ahonen and Kenneth Möllersten summarise key recommendations from the NET-RAPIDO project.
If you work in the field of negative emissions technologies, join this NET-Rapido workshop on September 22nd.
Public funding could scale up Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR)* technologies, a new report by Perspectives Climate Research of the NET-RAPIDO project finds. While CDR does not replace the need to drastically cut back greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), an ensemble of CDR approaches could contribute to limiting global warming.
On December 10th 2020, NET-RAPIDO was present at the 12th International Conference on Applied Energy (ICAE). During this day, a panel was hosted to discuss the possibilities around the deployment of negative emissions technologies (NETs), to mitigate carbon emissions from sectors that have proven hardest to decarbonize as the world’s economies seek to transition to net-zero by 2050.
The NET-RAPIDO project will be joining the Negative Emissions Technology panel discussion at the 12th International Conference on Applied Energy (ICAE2020) on December 10th, 16:00-17:00 (GMT+1).
On-the-ground experiences on the development of Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) were shared, in an exchange on parallel national processes in the UK and Nordic countries, which have the potential to impact pathways for the European and Global contexts. NET-RAPIDO’s research team was joined by Climate Policy expert Oras Tynkkynen, and panellists Ilkka Hannula, Fabian Levihn and Karl Smyth from pilots in the UK, Finland and Sweden.
Last December, NET-RAPIDO organised its first two events at the COP25 conference in Madrid, with the purpose of raising awareness on the debate on carbon removal, while presenting for the first time to the public the objectives of NET-RAPIDO.
