Biomass-based Carbon Sinks. Carbon Neutrality 2050

8 Apr 2021

The aim of this webinar is to provide scientific information on these key biomass-based C-sink solutions, their technological readiness level and highlight their advantages, limitations, and synergies with the long-term climate projections

Webinar

This webinar has been organised by Bioenergy Europe and The European Biochar Industry Consortium.

In order to achieve carbon neutrality, we need to act on two fronts: (i) rigorous emissions reduction and (ii) active carbon removal from the atmosphere.

It will be looking at three realistic, quickly scalable and shovel ready biomass-based solutions for carbon removal:

  • Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage,
  • Forests as carbon sinks as well as
  • Pyrogenic Carbon Capture and Storage (Biochar).

Speakers include:

  • Dr. Simon Kay, Senior Expert, European Commission, DG Climate Action, Land Use and Finance for Innovation Unit
  • Prof. Jan Minx, Head of working group Applied Sustainability Science, Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change (MCC)
  • Dr.Sc. Kati Koponen, Senior Scientist, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland
  • Dr. Hans Verkerk, Principal Scientist – Climate-Smart Forestry, European Forest Institute
  • Hansjörg Lerchenmüller, Chairman, European Biochar Industry Consortium (EBI)
