Track: Carbon Capture and Storage

Impact

Description: Fossil fuel power stations and other industrial sources account for more than 65% of global CO2 emissions Will you help us reduce global CO2 emissions to protect our environment? Global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are expected to double by 2050. There are many challenges associated with developing renewable energy technologies that can meet global energy demands. Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technology captures CO2 from fossil fuel power stations and other industrial sources, separates it from other gases and feeds it via pipelines to deep offshore underground storage. CCS is critical if fossil fuels are to be part of any future secure energy supply.
