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


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)
