As a means to combat global warming, numerous projects focused on extracting CO2 from the atmosphere, often labelled as “negative emissions”, are now being considered or are already set in motion.
The IEA Bioenergy project “Deployment of Bio-CCS/CCU Value Chains” focuses on options for negative emissions related to bioenergy with carbon capture and storage or utilisation, also referred to as bio-CCS/CCU or BECCUS. Three case studies were recently published, centring on integrating CCS in central biomass-based heat and/or power production. The studies looked at projects at HOFOR Amager CHP in Denmark, the Drax Power Station in the UK, and at Fortum Oslo Varme (FOV) in Norway.
The study at HOFOR was authored by Christian Bang of Ea Energy Analyses, who is currently serving as the Danish country representative in IEA Bioenergy Task 40.
