250 Mha = 100 EJ
= 5% ag land + pasture
= 1/3 Brazilie
[GIRACT FFF Scenario project; Faaij, 2008]
feedstock is poplar wood
- air or oxygen
- pressurised or
- ‘wet’ cold or
- slurry reactor
or fixed bed
- CO2 removal
Major investments in IG-FT capacity
ongoing in China right now:
- Reducing dependency on oil imports!
- Without capture strong increase in CO2 emissions…
