New tech will soon generate clean hydrogen from biomass🌿 Paired with carbon capture and storage, this could remove CO2 from the atmosphere. Generating green jobs, attracting private investment and bringing us closer to #NetZero emissions. 👉gov.uk/government/news/gover…

how clean is this biomass? how clean is the subsequent hydrogen? (including NOx)?

Biomass AKA #WoodBurning is not the answer. "Wood burns inefficiently, producing large amounts of carbon for each unit of energy that it produces. Worse, it takes decades for those forests to regrow and suck up that carbon—decades that we don’t have." newyorker.com/news/annals-of…

Just to clarify. The details say they are going to use Carbon Capture to store the carbon made during the process. But why??? Why not build more solar and wind energy generation, and then use the Carbon Capture for the CO2 that's already in the atmosphere? It doesn't make sense.

@UKRI_News Could you please look at other people's research on biomass. It doesn't make sense to use carbon capture on a process that releases carbon. Just solar and wind instead.

It makes zero sense =and is a very clever con job being foisted on us by an increasingly desperate fossil fuel industry. Here's a cast iron fact. carbon capture and storage does not work.

Stop. Wait a minute. How can you call it "clean" hydrogen if it's being produced from the COMBUSTION of something?! Combustion ≠ clean. #greenwashing

Dept for BS more like. This is NOT green.

'Soon' ?! 'Soon' !!!? Perhaps the press release writer should actually read the document. And £5m means that we are are the very beginning of the wildly experimental and diverse period of innovation: not deployment ready.
