The combination of biomass processing or combustion with carbon capture and storage (CCS) is referred to as "bio-energy with carbon capture and storage" (BECCS). This practice involves applying CCS technology to biomass carbon dioxide (CO2) point emission sources and uses technologies for transporting and storing CO2 that are, to a large extent, like those applied to CCS involving fossil fuels. This report discusses 16 projects, globally, that are aiming to install a BECCS process, as well as known barriers, lessons learned, and the potential for broad implementation of BECCS.
