Moving Below Zero

Synopsis

Apr 16, 2014 - 1:00am

Technologies that remove heat trapping carbon pollution from the atmosphere are now central to a lower risk strategy to avoid highly dangerous climate change.

Moving Below Zero: Understanding Bio-energy with Carbon Capture & Storage includes a world first study examining the role of carbon removal technologies in national climate policy scenarios. Carried out by leading economics firm Jacobs SKM, the modelling finds that bio-energy with carbon capture and storage, or bio-CCS using food wastes, sustainable forest biomass, or crop residues, has the potential to contribute significantly to climate change efforts in Australia.

On this page you'll find the report and related content including an animation, infographics, factsheets, and presentations.
