|Toelichting (Engels)||This report assesses the potential for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) in biomass-based industrial applications. The combination of (near) CO2 neutral use of biomass as feedstock and CCS potentially allows for removal of CO2 from the atmosphere for geological timescales. The recent projections for the IEA Blue Map low-demand scenario (IEA, 2010) illustrate that Bio Energy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) will play an important role to meet ambitious CO2 emission reduction targets during this century. At present, biofuels production only takes place at moderate scale. An important barrier to broad implementation is that BECCS technologies are currently not recognized in any emission trading schemes, and are also not included in any of the large-scale CCS demonstration projects. Significant scale-up efforts of biofuel synthesis plants are needed to establish sufficient long-term impact of net CO2 emission reduction through BECCS.|
