This paper reviews the relevant research on carbon neutrality. At present, scholars' research mainly focuses on the following aspects: first, mainly discusses the carbon neutrality of different research objects; Second, focus on the role of biomass in China; Third, the regional heterogeneity of carbon neutrality in China is not fully considered.
