The production of bioenergy with carbon capture and sequestration is considered a form of carbon dioxide removal (CDR). The process begins by growing biomass, burning it to create energy and finally capturing and sequestering the carbon dioxide created in the process. Negative CO2 emissions are generated by combining bio-energy production [biomass fuel power stations, pulp mills and biofuel plants] with carbon capture and storage technology, allowing carbon dioxide to be captured from the atmosphere and remitted back underground.
