The capture and storage of CO2 from combustion of fossil fuels is gaining attraction as a means to deal with climate change. CO2 emissions from biomass conversion processes can also be captured. If that is done, biomass energy with CO2 capture and storage (BECS) would become a technology that removes CO2 from the atmosphere and at the same time deliver CO2-neutral energy carriers (heat, electricity or hydrogen) to society. Here we present estimates of the costs and conversion efficiency of… 

A Review Based on Low- and High-Stream Global Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Technology and Implementation Strategy

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a method used to capture CO2 that is produced via the combustion of fossil fuels and then store it away from the atmosphere for a long time. The focus of CCS is on

Carbon Capture and Storage: Cost Analysis of Electricity Production for Latvia

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a significant technology in the limitation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere worldwide. A carbon capture and storage system consists of four general processes:

Coal and biomass to fuels and power.

If CCS proves to be viable as a major carbon mitigation option, the main obstacles to deployment of coproduction systems as power generators would be institutional.

Biomass With Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage In a Carbon Constrained World

This paper investigates the potential role of biomass electricity generation with geologic carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS). The sustainable coupling of biomass with CCS technologies would

Biomass energy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS or Bio-CCS)

In terms of climate mitigation options, the theoretical potential of biomass energy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) is substantial; introducing the prospect of negative emissions, it offers
