Biomass energy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS)

Publication Date Jan 1, 2020


Abstract The industrial revolution and continuous greenhouse gases (GHGs) emission may lead to environmental changes to severe and irretrievable state. To mitigate this change not only reduction in GHGs emission but also atmospheric carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) will also be required. Bioenergy with CCS (BECCS) has been modeled to bring down the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere to below current range by delivering negative emissions. We begin this chapter with the introduction of negative emission concept then biomass feedstock that has been previously taken up CO2 to produced energy. The next section describes different methods to sequester CO2 in detail. Furthermore, the chapter discussed first-, second-and third-generation biofuel based on the different feedstock used. Various processes of biomass conversion into liquid biofuel and other valuable bioproducts by applying a biorefinery approach have been mentioned.
