Workshop: Biomass combustion and CCUS on 21st September 2023

21 Sep, 2023 - 21 Sep, 2023
Location: Online

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.

As a part of the BECCUS 2.0 project conducted by several tasks in IEA Bioenergy, Task 32 organised a workshop on 21st September 2023 aiming at describing consequences of installing carbon capture technology at biomass and waste combustion units.

The workshop was targeted for 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. Results of the 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.
