    Abstract : Carbon dioxide removal (CDR) methods, such as bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS), have gained traction in international climate policy arenas to meet net-zero goals. Even though companies operating facilities with large point sources of biogenic emissions, such as pulp and paper industries and energy utilities, could implement carbon capture, there are few studies that take a bottomup perspective to study these key actors.

    Abstract : Sweden has committed to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to a net-zero level by Year 2045. In Sweden, about 20% of its annual CO2 emissions are from the manufacture, transport and processing of materials for both the construction and refurbishment of buildings and transport infrastructure.

  3. 3. Fossil Free or Not - That is the Question

    Author : Torbjörn Skytt; Bengt-Gunnar Jonsson; Monica Odlare; Markku Rummukainen; Mittuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fossil free; Carbon balance; Carbon flow; Energy flow; Climate mitigation; Governing climate change; Forest carbon;

    Abstract : This is an evaluation of Jämtland County’s ability to achieve its climate targets to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions with 10% annually, and to become fossil fuel free 2030. There is a risk that the target to become fossil fuel-free, relying primarily on outtake of forest biomass, contradicts with the target in the UN Paris Agreement to keep the global temperature increase below 1.

  4. 4. Climate change mitigation in China

    Author : Bo Xu; Ronald Wennersten; Kerstin Kuchta; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; China; Climate change mitigation; Environmental Kuznets Curve EKC hypothesis; Mitigation target; Business-as-usual BAU scenarios; Policy instruments;

    Abstract : China has been experiencing great economic development and fast urbanisation since its reforms and opening-up policy in 1978. However, these changes are reliant on consumption of primary energy, especially coal, characterised by high pollution and low efficiency. READ MORE

  5. 5. Reducing Carbon Dioxide Emissions from the EU Power and Industry Sectors - An assessment of key technologies and measures

    Author : Johan Rootzén; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; industry; carbon dioxide; cement; European Union; technologies; emission reductions; CCS; power; steel; CO2< sub>; refining; mitigation;

    Abstract : In February 2011, the European Council reconfirmed the goal of reducing EU greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% by 2050, as compared to the levels in 1990. The power and industrial sectors currently account for almost half of the total GHG emissions in the EU. READ MORE
