Countries and organisations around the world are racing towards net zero emissions targets. Major companies including Microsoft, Google, Siemens and Unilever have pledged to balance their emissions to net zero before 2050.
One of the projects will investigate the management of peatlands to maximise their removal of greenhouse gas emissions
The acquisition is forecast to help the company’s annual operational capacity reach 4.9 million tonnes of sustainable biomass pellets from 2022
The company has started the application to build BECCS units as soon as 2024
The funding will support bioenergy as well as hydrogen and fuel cell technologies

Quarterly renewables share has never previously exceeded 40% of total electricity generation, according to the BEIS report
They would be tolerant of environmental stress and resilient to changing environmental conditions
Decarbonising the UK’s heat network is one of the biggest energy challenges we face. The role of bioenergy, including biomass, in helping meet net zero heat emissions, has been convincingly outlined by the Renewable Energy Association’s (REA) Bioenergy Strategy report this week.
Whilst we continue to create energy milestones, such as the UK not using any coal to generate electricity for 18 days, renewable heat generation is not making the same headlines.
