Implications of COP26 for future bioenergy & bioeconomy

The COP26 Climate Change Conference will be held in the first half of November is expected to emphasize the sense of urgency and the need for short term action to turn the tide on climate change.

Actions in the next decade will have a strong impact on future pathways, with the post-COVID recovery being an inherent part of this. Strengthened climate action will imply an increasing role for sustainable biomass as renewable energy source for different sectors; providing renewable carbon in the biobased economy; and providing options for negative emissions.

The implications of what the COP26 decisions mean for further deployment in bioenergy and the biobased economy will be discussed in this opening panel of the conference.
