Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) provides technology operators and governments the opportunity to generate negative carbon emissions, providing a significant boost in the race to meet net zero targets. By using plants containing biogenic carbon to produce biofuels, much of the carbon dioxide emitted from the biofuel combustion is effectively returned back into the atmosphere. Emissions associated with producing the crop and biofuel processing also contribute to carbon footprint. Biogenic carbon emissions which are captured during fuel production or fuel combustion, and permanently sequestered, may result in a net removal of carbon dioxide. Net removal of carbon emissions requires that non-biogenic carbon emissions for the entire BECCS process are lower than the biogenic carbon sequestered. There are different BECCS pathways and technologies under investigation with methods for CO2 collection and sequestration taking various forms.
