Carbon Capture and Storage (Royal Society of Chemistry series)


Carbon capture and storage (CCS) and negative emissions technologies will play an essential role in climate change mitigation if we are to deliver the Paris Agreement. Identifying the role and value of CCS relative to other mitigation technologies is of vital importance. This book provides a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of the major sources of carbon dioxide emissions, capture and storage, as well as negative emissions technologies, and provides insight into the role and value of CCS in the industrial and power sectors. The issues associated with commercial deployment of CCS are discussed, providing potential approaches to overcome these hurdles through a combination of political, economic and R&D strategies. Carbon Capture and Storage provides the latest global perspective on the role and value of CCS in delivering temperature targets and reducing the impact of global warming.

Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage, and direct air carbon capture and storage: Examining the evidence on deployment potential and costs in the UK

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have highlighted that large-scale carbon dioxide removal (CDR) is critical to meeting UNFCCC Paris Agreement targets. This UKERC TPA working paper has been prepared to support the Committee on Climate Change’s advice to the UK government on the implications of the Paris Agreement on its long-term emissions reduction targets. This review addresses two technological CDR solutions: bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) and direct air carbon capture and storage (DACCS). Read the report here.
