New Article in Science features Research on Negative Emissions Technology (BECCS)

A new article in Science features the Water, Agriculture, Food, Energy, Research Nexus (WAFERx) project, with a focus on the project's research into bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) in the Upper Missouri River Basin. As the impacts of climate change become more pronounced in coming years, BECCS and other negative emissions technologies are looked to as a means of avoiding dangerous future climate scenarios by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Often the real world implications of these technologies are not well understood, but projects like WAFERx are working to increase our understanding of such technologies and their on-the-ground impacts.
