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 organises a workshop aiming at describing consequences of installing carbon capture technology at biomass and waste combustion units.

The workshop is targeted at plant operators and will highlight experiences with the development of concrete European projects as well as results of project activities of the BECCUS 2.0 project. Results of our modelling case of installation of a full-scale Carbon Capture (CC) facility at an existing large biomass CHP plant and a study of BECCUS options at smaller scale biomass combustion units will be highlighted.
