Bioenergy with CCS key to meeting emission targets: ETI
A report by the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) has highlighted the importance of combining bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) if the UK is to meet its 2050 emissions targets cost-effectively. Issued on Tuesday 8 November, the report explained that BECCS could deliver negative emissions while also producing energy in the form of electricity, heat, gas and liquids. The ETI said BECCS deployment was achievable by 2030 because all the major components of the system had been demonstrated individually. It said a successful implementation could lead to up to 55mn tonnes of CO2 emissions a year in the 2050s being removed from the atmosphere.
