The EU bioenergy sector is at the edge of technological innovations providing unique and sizeable solutions at a time of climate emergency. Drastic reduction of emissions is required, but it is not enough – there is an increasing need to capture carbon back from the atmosphere. Bioenergy Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) can achieve negative emissions by storing the CO2 resulting from the combustion of sustainable biomass. In order to move from a demonstration to a commercial phase and roll out this technology, BECCS and other negative-emission-technologies need a clear regulatory framework at the EU level and solid financial support. Without financial incentives, the commercial application of these technologies cannot advance.
