BECCS with Combined Heat and Power – assessing the energy penalty
Bio Energy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) is widely recognized as a vital technology for reaching the climate goals of the Paris Agreement. Despite this, BECCS has yet failed to move beyond small scale demonstration units. One notable hurdle, deterring investments, is the energy penalty of operating BECCS with a power plant.
Biochar on smallholder farms in Kenya
The production and use of biochar in 150 smallholder farming households in three different regions in Kenya is investigated in this project.
Royal Seaports’ physical resource flows
This research project aims to provide a physical resource accounting model for urban systems in order to improve physical resource management in Stockholm Royal Seaport.
System analysis of biochar production and use in Swedish urban and rural areas
Biochar is the solid carbonaceous residue of biogenic organic matter (biomass) thermally degraded under low oxygen conditions (pyrolysis).
