From the text ... 'Wich is best: bury, burn or both? The extraordinary heterogeneity of the energy system makes it unlikely that any single solution will triumph everywhere. In practice, there will be no absolute dominance of any one strategy over another, and each may well succeed in some niche. In general, however, because of the effectiveness of biomass with sequestration in reducing emissions per unit biomass, 'both' will tend to triumph over the other biomass options as constraints on carbon grow stronger.' © 2002 Kluwer Academic Publishers.
