Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage

The Energy White Paper, Powering our Net Zero Future (CP 337), published in December 2020 by HM Government, suggests that bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS ) refers to: ‘bioenergy processes (such as burning it for electricity) during which carbon is captured and stored. If carefully managed, using sustainable biomass, BECCS can generate ‘negative emissions’ because while providing energy it also it also captures and stores the atmospheric CO that is absorbed by plants as they grow.’
