Improving industrial processes through bioenergy with carbon capture and storage

This project created a model to help industry calculate the end-to-end carbon costs of operating bioenergy with carbon capture and storage, one of the most viable and cost-effective large-scale energy generation and CO2 removal processes, anywhere in the UK. This model could help UK industries become more prosperous, whilst also helping them to drastically reduce their carbon emissions.
