  • Coal/Biomass combination with CO2 capture greener than renewables but not most eco-efficient

    If a combination of coal and biomass provided the energy source for electricity and the CO2 from the combustion was captured, there would be more carbon extracted from the atmosphere than returned to it. The best global warming reducer would be a 100 percent biomass boiler with 90 percent CO2 capture, but there is not enough biomass to generate the electricity the world needs.  However, a ...
