Some surprising truths about how biomass affect climate, and some tenacious myths.
August 30, 2021
Typical CCS consist of two parts one can very simplified describe it. The first part is the actual carbon capture – a separation step for carbon capture in the flue gas – and the second part is a transportation step: in the acronym above referred to as storage. When the fuel in a energy plant that utilizes a carbon capture solution is biomass, you get a new acronym: BECCS.
The reason being, that as trees grow it capture carbon dioxide from the air, and since this “captured” carbon dioxide will in this case not be released back into the atmosphere it in affect creates negative emmisions.
