Bio-energy and CCS (BECCS): Options for Brazil

The world needs ever increasing energy supplies for sustainable economic growth and development. But energy resources are under pressure and CO2 emissions from today’s energy use already threaten our climate.

What options does bioenergy offer to foster energy security, while at the same time providing an opportunity to decarbonize increasing energy production substantially by combining it with carbon capture and storage (CCS)?

From 13-14 June 2013, the International Energy Agency (IEA), in cooperation with the Institute of Electrotechnology and Energy (IEE) and the Center of Research in Policies and Regulation of Carbon Emissions (NUPPREC) at Sao Paulo University, and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), will explore carbon capture and storage (CCS), bioenergy and the combination of using bioenergy with CCS (BECCS) in the context of Brazil’s energy and climate change policy.

This is the third in a series of IEA-IIASA BECCS Experts Workshops preceded by an 2011 event at IIASA, Austria and a national stakeholder workshop in Jakarta, Indonesia in 2012.
