In the project BioCAP-CCS, I analyze the sequestration potential of large-scale biomass carbonation as well as corresponding impacts on the biosphere and food production.

According to my focus on the concept of planetary boundaries as a methodological frame for the trade-off analysis, I operate within the OPEN group. Here, I use LPJmL to simulate changes in carbon and water fluxes caused by the expansion of biomass plantations.
