Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage: Using Natural Resources for Sustainable Development presents the technologies associated with bioenergy and CCS and its applicability as an emissions reduction tool. The book explores existing climate policies and current carbon capture and storage technologies. Sections offer an overview of several routes to use biomass and produce bioenergy through processes with low or even negative CO2 emissions. Associated technology and the results of recent research studies to improve the sustainability of the processes are described, pointing out future trends and needs. This book can be used by bioenergy engineering researchers in industry and academia and by professionals and researchers in carbon capture and storage.

Key Features

  • Presents the most recent technologies in use and future trends in research and policy
  • Examines the bioenergy production and biomass processing value chains, including biorefining, negative emission technologies and the use of microalgae
  • Includes techno-economic analysis and sustainability assessment of the technologies discussed, as well as an overview of the latest research results


Engineers and researchers in the field of biomass, bioenergy, or carbon capture and storage. Industry professionals in energy and sustainability sectors, especially in bioenergy and CCS. Energy and sustainability analysts, consultants and policy makers

About the Editor

Jose Carlos Magalhaes Pires

José Carlos Magalhães Pires graduated in Chemical Engineering by Faculty of Engineering of University of Porto (FEUP) in 2004. He worked in two chemical companies and then started his PhD in Environmental Engineering in 2006 at FEUP. From 2010, he is a postdoctoral researcher in the area of environmental applications of microalgal cultures, including the CO2 capture and bioenergy production. Performed studies showed that microalgal cultures are a promise solution to mitigate the atmospheric CO2 concentration. Dr. Pires is currently Research fellow at LEPABE-FEUP under FCT Investigator 2015 Programme with title "Design configurations of photobioreactors for cultivation of microalgae: bioprocess modelling and sustainability assessment". During the period from 2017 to 2021, JCM Pires will study different PBR designs with numerical tools. JCM Pires published 44 papers in international peer reviewed journals, 2 books and 14 book chapters and his research work was discussed in 27 international meetings and 2 national meetings.

Ana Luisa da Cunha Goncalves

Ana Luisa da Cunha Gonçalves graduated in Bioengineering (Biological Engineering Branch) by Faculty of Engineering of University of Porto in 2012. In 2013, she started her PhD in Chemical and Biological Engineering at FEUP. The PhD, entitled Microalgal cultivation for biomass production, CO2 capture and nutrients uptake, aimed the optimization of culturing conditions of microalgae and cyanobacteria in laboratory and pilot scale to improve both CO2 capture and nutrients uptake from the culture medium. Before finishing the PhD, she worked for 9 months as Wet Biomass Production Manager in a microalgal production company. Currently, Dr. Gonçalves is a postdoctoral researcher in the TexBoost project at CITEVE and also an external researcher at LEPABE-FEUP. AL Gonçalves published 20 papers in international peer reviewed journals, 2 book chapters and her research work was discussed in 10 international meetings.
