In the aftermath of the COP 21 and with the Paris Agreement well under way to being ratified we are taking another important step towards reducing GHG emissions and mitigate climate change. New updates on the IPCC emission scenarios are underway. The new scenarios are likely to escalate the significance of negative emissions in order to reach the climate goals.

The IEA Bioenergy Task 41 on Bio-CC(U)S in cooperation with Bellona Europa arranged a workshop in connection with the GHGT-13 conference in Lausanne in November. The topic of the workshop was Sustainability and GHG impact of bio-CC(U)S.
