SuSeWi’s plant based net-zero solution is mentioned in this report.

In its new report Bioresources within a Net-Zero Emissions Economy, the Energy Transitions Commission (ETC) makes plain that, while bioresources are in principle renewable, not all forms of biomass use are beneficial from an environmental perspective: not all biomass is ‘good’ biomass. To be sustainable, biomass production should have low lifecycle GHG emissions. Its production should take into account the ‘opportunity cost’ related to carbon that could be sequestered without intervention, and must not:

 

  • compete with use of land for food production
  • trigger any land use change that could release carbon stocks into the atmosphere (especially deforestation)
  • negatively impact biodiversity
