Launch of the Fact Sheet on Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage: BECCS

The BECCS Fact Sheet compiles relevant information, in a visual and synthetic way, to introduce concepts on the topic.

Biogenic CO2 capture and storage is one of the solutions to mitigate climate change in line with the Paris Agreement target of limiting global warming to well-below 2ºC relative to pre-industrial levels. By permanently capturing carbon absorbed from the atmosphere via photosynthesis, BECCS can be characterized as a negative emissions technology that is combined with the energy generation and/or biofuels.

Brazil has industries with high potential for BECCS deployment, such as ethanol production from sugarcane and corn, as these processes generate high-purity CO2 streams.

The document illustrates bioenergy and BECCS carbon cycles, stressing that the proper evaluation of these systems must consider the life cycle emissions and removals. Other topics covered are capture costs, projects around the world and the challenges of moving forward with the development of BECCS.

Launch of the Fact Sheet on Synthetic Fuels

06/09/2023 - The Fact Sheet on Synthetic Fuels compiles relevant information, in a visual and synthetic way, to introduce concepts on the subject. For the decarbonization of modes of transport that cover long distances (e.g. air, sea and heavy road), it is necessary that energy sources have a high density. Therefore, synthetic fuels are an alternative to fossil analogues.
