The whole world is under pressure to perform.
We need to increase the efficiency of our energy consumption and promote sources of non-fossil fuel energy. Yet despite advances in these areas and technological leaps forward in renewables such as solar, wind and hydropower, the world is in danger of failing to meet those targets. In turn, we are in danger of failing our responsibility to future generations.
Experts highlight CCS deployment
But there carbon capture and storage can play an important role. CCS can prevent large amounts of CO2 from entering the atmosphere at large industrial point sources and if the fuel is biogenic, CCS can actually contribute to reducing CO2 in the atmosphere. Clean hydrogen can be made by steam reforming of natural gas and by storing the byproduct CO2.
