  • Is Britain Ready For Carbon Capture And Storage?

    Is Britain Ready For Carbon Capture and Storage? introduces an innovative technology with worldwide potential for helping to solve our climate change problems. Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) involves capturing up to 95% of the CO2 emitted from fossil fuel power stations, transporting it via pipeline or container before storing it securely ...

  • Carbon Capture

    Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is the only method available for reducing CO2 emissions while allowing continued use of fossil fuels, both for power generation and potentially in broader contexts. Carbon capture technologies are already playing a role in reducing emissions from large sources such as power stations. Carbon capture could ...

  • Cement Technology Roadmap 2009 : Carbon emissions reductions up to 2050

    Cement Technology Roadmap: Carbon emissions reductions up to 2050” calls for strong national policies to activate known CO 2 mitigation actions that the cement industry can take now to reduce its emissions. It also issues a call to action to develop commercially-viable carbon capture and storage technologies as a method for further reducing global ...

  • Carbon and Nitrogen Cycling in European Forest Ecosystems

    The storage of carbon in forest ecosystems has received special attention in the Kyoto protocol of the Climate Convention, which attempts to equilibrate fossil fuel emissions with biological sinks. This volume quantifies carbon storage in managed forest ecosystems not only in biomass, but also in all soil compartments. It investigates the ...

  • Six Thousand Feet Under: Burying The Carbon Problem

    The UK is missing the opportunity to be a world leader in tackling climate change due to Government inaction.This report argues that Carbon Capture and Storage is essential to meet UK CO2 targets and deliver clean electricity and that the UK is ideally placed to spearhead a new movement to cutting carbon emissions internationally. This however is ...

  • Carbon Dioxide Removal from Coal-Fired Power Plants

    To diminish the threat of a rapidly changing climate, emissions of CO2 should be reduced. One way to reduce these emissions is CO2 removal -- the recovery of carbon dioxide from energy conversion processes and storage outside the atmosphere. This book, authored by one of the pioneers in this field, gives an extensive description of three ...

  • Natural Sinks of Co2

    Most of the attention with respect to the increase in atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations centers around three issues: human-generated sources of carbon, mostly from burning fossil fuels; tropical deforestation, which accelerates the production of atmospheric carbon while causting havoc with biodiversity and the economic development of ...

  • The Natural Fix ? The Role of Ecosystems in Climate Mitigation

    Large cuts in emissions of greenhouse gases are needed if we are to avoid the worst effects of global climate change. This Rapid Assessment Report describes the vital contributions which ecosystems can and must make to improve these efforts. It presents carbon capture and storage through a Green Economy lens, outlining the potential in terms of ...

  • Alternative Water Supply Systems

    Owing to climate change related uncertainties and anticipated population growth, different parts of the developing and the developed world (particularly urban areas) are experiencing water shortages or flooding and security of fit-for-purpose supplies is becoming a major issue. The emphasis on decentralized alternative water supply systems has ...

  • Innovation for Sustainable Electricity Systems

    Innovation is key to achieving a sustainable electricity system. New technologies and organizational changes can bring about more sustainable, climate-friendly electricity structures. Yet the dynamics of innovation are complex, and difficult to shape. This book, written by experts in the field, sets out to explore the dynamics, the drivers and the ...

  • Future Electricity Technologies and Systems

    Where will our electricity come from in the future, and how will we use it? The UK is aiming for a 60% reduction of 1990 carbon dioxide emission levels by 2050, yet the electricity industry and patterns of electricity use must change radically if this is to be achieved. This authoritative overview analyses a range of possible scenarios for the ...
