Each month we review the latest news and select key announcements and commentary from across the bioenergy sector.


The use of biomass-fuelled power enables the production of low-carbon energy. Carbon dioxide released during combustion is offset by regrowth of biomass which absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. As long as the biomass resource is managed appropriately to deliver net growth, this cycle is a key technology to support the goal of net-zero emissions. In addition, net-negative technologies are essential to enable an overall net-zero, as for some sectors, net-zero emissions isn’t going to be feasible. Therefore, net-negative technologies like carbon capture and storage (CCS) are being developed and are essential to delivering net-zero ambitions, as acknowledged by the Committee on Climate Change (CCC). The process involves the capturing of carbon, compression and transportation to appropriate underground storage sites.
