The EU could halve its emissions from its power plants by 2050 through the combined use of carbon capturing technologies and burning more biomass, a report has found.
The study by the European Biofuels Technology Platform says that carbon negative power is possible if power stations mix more energy crops with fossil fuels to fire their plants.
Carbon negative electricity production is a realistic possibility if power plants burning biomass are also fitted with CO2 capturing technology.
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) involves collecting the CO2 emissions from a power plant and storing it inside rock formation.
