Results of Biopower CCS project published in Applied Energy

AppliedEnergyThe results of the Techno-Economic Study of Biomass to Power with CO2 capture (TESBiC) project have been published in the Applied Energy journal, in an article co-authored by E4tech’s Richard Taylor and Ausilio Bauen. The TESBiC study, commissioned by the UK’s Energy Technologies Institute (ETI), assessed twenty-eight Biopower CCS technology combinations from the perspective of being able to deploy Biopower CCS by 2050. The study identified that the more developed technologies currently have similar costs and performance, with the potential benefits of earlier stage technologies accompanied by greater risks – however, overall, plant scale, co-firing percentage and fuel prices emerged as key drivers of the levelised cost of electricity (LCOE) produced. It also highlighted the lack of financial incentives for generation of electricity with negative CO2 emissions.
