Two-page-summary – Bio-CCS and Bio-CCU: Climate change mitigation and extended use of biomass raw material

Date Jun 2018


Between May 2016 and January 2018 IEA Bioenergy organized four specific workshops concentrated on various aspects around Bio-CCS and Bio-CCU. This paper shows the general conclusions related to Bio-CCS, Bio-CCU and its climate impact.

From a climate perspective, the most important applications of Bio-CCS and Bio-CCU identified in this project are:

  • Indirect electrification of sectors which are otherwise difficult to decarbonize
  • Boosting the output of biomass based processes, such as gasification, fermentation or anaerobic digestion with renewable electricity
  • Applications where high concentration CO2 is captured and stored, simultaneously with energy/product generation
