Bioenergy, CCS and BECCS: Options for Indonesia

ESM researchers Michael Obersteiner, Florian Kraxner and Sabine Fuss participated in this high-level workshop, which is a follow-up on an expert’s meeting on BECCS held jointly by the IEA and IIASA in Laxenburg, Austria in November 2011.

Carbon capture and storage (CCS), bioenergy, and the combination of bioenergy with CCS (‘BECCS’) are essential elements in a portfolio of technologies aimed at mitigating climate change. 

The scope of this workshop was to explore the role these technologies could play in Indonesia’s energy and climate policy. The workshop was organised by the IEA in cooperation with the Republic of Indonesia’s Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (KESDM) and President’s Delivery Unit for Monitoring and Oversight (UKP4), the School of Business and Management at Bandung Institute of Technology (SBMITB) and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA).


Among other results, one outcome was the establishing of a BECCS working group in Indonesia, coordinated by UKP4’s head Dr. Kuntoro Mangkusubroto, under involvement of all relevant Indonesian ministries and stakeholders. The group together with IEA and IIASA will aim at a joint project focusing on Indonesia, Brazil and China. The series of BECCS experts workshops will continue in 2013 in Brazil.
