Abstract

The aggregate technical potential for land-based negative emissions technologies (NETs) in the UK is estimated to be 12-49 Mt C eq. per year, representing around 8-32% of current emissions. The proportion of this potential that could be realized is limited by a number of cost, energy and environmental constraints which vary greatly between NETs.
