Bioenergy Europe and The European Biochar Industry Consortium are pleased to invite you to the webinar "Biomass-based Carbon Sinks: Carbon neutrality 2050".

Europe has politically set the path to climate neutrality through the Green Deal.

In order to achieve carbon neutrality, we need to act on two fronts: (i) rigorous emissions reduction and (ii) active carbon removal from the atmosphere.

The webinar will discuss three realistic, quickly scalable and shovel ready biomass-based solutions for carbon removal:

  • Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage,
  • Forests as carbon sinks as well as
  • Pyrogenic Carbon Capture and Storage (Biochar).

The aim is to provide scientific information on these key biomass-based C-sink solutions, their technological readiness level and highlight their advantages, limitations and synergies with the long-term climate projections.

The event will consist of 5 presentations delivered by the leading experts in this field and followed by a Q&A session.
