Unpacking the silver bullet: ecological and economic implications of bioenergy plus CCS (BECCS)

Emily McGlynn, UC Davis

BECCS is relied upon heavily in integrated assessment models that chart pathways to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius, yet deploying this technology at scale will require overcoming a suite of ecological and economic challenges, including land use competition, hydrology, nutrient application, and large incremental costs. This talk will summarize the state of literature on the need for BECCS and constraints to deployment, and also identify the additional research, piloting, demonstration, and policy support that will be necessary conditions for deploying BECCS at gigaton-scale globally.
