Human Rights Dimensions of Bioenergy With Carbon Capture and Storage: A Framework for Climate Justice in the Realm of Climate Geoengineering
- Aug 29, 2020 12:09 am GMT
This chapter proposes a framework for operationalizing the Paris Agreement’s human rights language in the context of an emerging potential response to climate change, bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS). BECCS seeks to reduce concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere in a process by which biomass is converted to heat, electricity, or liquid or gas fuels, coupled with CO2 capture and sequestration (CCS), whereby CO2 is stored terrestrially or in the ocean. BECCS is denominated a “negative emissions technology” because it can effectuate a permanent net removal of CO2, as opposed to processes that merely reduce emissions to the atmosphere.
