Workshop on biomass combustion and CCUS

| On going - On going

On September 21st, the IEA Bioenergy Task 32 organised a workshop aiming at describing consequences of installing carbon capture technology at biomass and waste combustion units. Ea Energy Analyses is the Danish representative in Task 32 (read about this work here).

Bioenergy combined with carbon capture and utilisation or storage, also known as BECCUS, is a concept that has been discussed in climate change mitigation research for quite some time. During the last five years the implementation has become the subject of serious consideration within governments and private actors.

The workshop was targeted plant operators and highlighted experiences with the development of concrete European projects as well as results of project activities of the BECCUS 2.0 project, which has been conducted by several tasks in IEA Bioenergy. Results of a modelling case of installation of a full-scale CC facility at an existing large biomass CHP plant and a study of BECCUS options at smaller scale biomass combustion units were highlighted.

The workshop was carried out online. All slides can be found here.
