This paper asks to what extent and how existing UN, EU, and Swedish climate policy instruments incentivize BECCS research, development, demonstration, and deployment in Sweden.
This study explores the mechanisms behind cost-optimal BECCS deployment with evolving regional CO2 removal targets and energy sectors to provide insights into choosing the right burden sharing principles and international trading mechanisms.
Prospects for bioenergy with carbon capture & storage (BECCS) in the United States pulp and paper industry
This paper estimates the technical and economic potential of integrating BECCS at pulp and paper mills in the United States with application of the existing federal tax credit for carbon capture and sequestration (Section 45Q).
Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS): Finding the win–wins for energy, negative emissions and ecosystem services—size matters
This paper identifies how smaller scale BECCS can be deployed to generate net welfare gains in the UK, and that landscape-scale and site-specific impacts need to be central to future BECCS policy developments.
Decision making in contexts of deep uncertainty – An alternative approach for long-term climate policy
This paper critically examines both the use of BECCS in mitigation scenarios and the decision making philosophy underlying the use of integrated assessment modelling to inform climate policy.
Tensions in the energy transition: Swedish and Finnish company perspectives on bioenergy with carbon capture and storage
This paper addresses the following research question: What are the barriers and driving forces to realize BECCS according to company representatives, including their views on policy and their role in contributing to national climate goals?
This paper explores some of the questions that emerge in relation to BECCS around governance and scale.
This paper investigates how different policies and incentives impact the public perception of BECCS.
Preconditions for Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) in sub-Saharan Africa: The Case of Tanzania
This paper analyzes the pre-conditions for BECCS in Tanzania, and argues that negative BECCS-related emissions from Tanzania should not be assumed in global climate mitigation scenarios.
Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Sequestration (BECCS): The Distracting Injustice of an Infeasible and Unlikely Technofix
This article, through the case study of BECCS, argues how indulging the concept of a technofix violates human rights and the Sustainable Development Goals.
