ARSTECHNICA.Com: Biomass plus carbon capture yields negative-emission energy
Could help power the Western grid while reducing emissions by 145 percent.
As we saw in yesterday's National Academies of Science (NAS) report, carbon capture and storage may not be ready for prime time, but the process is clearly worth considering whether it should be developed, both technologically and economically. And perfectly timed for the release of the NAS report, Nature Climate Change has published a look at the possible impacts of its use with what's already a carbon-neutral energy source: biomass. The report finds that it could be used to generate as much as 10GW of power while helping to reduce emissions in the Western US and Canada by up to 145 percent compared to 1990 levels.
