Toward carbon-negative power plants with biomass cofiring and CCS

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional

Abstract

The goal of CO2 emissions reductions and renewable energy incentives have led some power plant operators to broaden their fuel palette to include various carbon-neutral biomass fuels. Biomass can be carbon neutral because it binds carbon from the atmosphere that is then released when it is burned, minimizing net emissions. Carbon capture and storage (CCS), another potential option to cut CO2 emissions from the power sector, is currently under extensive research, development, and demonstration globally. CCS is advancing toward commercialization, but there are still hurdles, mostly nontechnical, that are impeding its widespread deployment.
