Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) in the UK: Contrasting land-use scenarios and implications for natural capital

Energy scenarios designed to meet the ambitious 1.5 oC and 2 oC targets established at the Paris Agreement emphasise the importance that Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) could play by generating significant “negative emissions”. Deploying BECCS will require significant infrastructural and logistical developments, as well as substantial land-use change. Here we explore how a national BECCS policy could be developed. Using the UK as a case study we highlight the technical, environmental, and social constraints, trade-offs, and synergies that are associated with a BECCS policy.

Abstract

Energy scenarios designed to meet the ambitious 1.5 oC and 2 oC targets established at the Paris Agreement emphasise the importance that Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) could play by generating significant “negative emissions”. Deploying BECCS will require significant infrastructural and logistical developments, as well as substantial land-use change. Here we explore how a national BECCS policy could be developed. Using the UK as a case study we highlight the technical, environmental, and social constraints, trade-offs, and synergies that are associated with a BECCS policy.
