For some industries, such as aviation, shipping, and cement manufacturing, the use of fossil fuels is unavoidable, at least in the short-to-medium term. It means that for companies or countries to reach net zero, there is the need to not just reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions, such as carbon dioxide (CO2), but to actively remove them from the atmosphere.
Achieving carbon removal at the scale needed to meet the climate targets of companies, and the Paris Agreement, will require a range of nature-based and technological solutions. Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) is a technology that utilises nature-based and technological solutions to both remove CO2 from the atmosphere and provide a source of renewable electricity.
