Biochar Carbon Removal: Analysis of different options to create and share economic value from carbon sequestration in new pyrolysis-oriented value chains in Denmark

NBN webinar series

Lars Villadsgaard Toft from SEGES Innovation, will present an analysis conducted in the fall of 2023 on different options to create and share economic value from BCR. The analysis considers key stakeholders in pyrolysis system value chains including e.g. farmers, pyrolysis plant owners, biogas plant owners, end-product consumers etc. and discusses important economic drivers and barriers that need to be acknowledged and addressed to realize the climate impact potentials of biomass pyrolysis at scale. The analysis has origin in a Danish case and has been developed around the role of the Danish agricultural sector.

As usual, participation is free but registration is required!
