About this book

It is widely recognised that global warming is occurring due to increasing levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Methods of capturing and then storing CO2 from major sources such as fossil-fuel-burning power plants are being developed to reduce the levels emitted to the atmosphere by human activities. The book reports on progress in this field and provides a context within the range of natural absorption processes in the oceans and forests and in soil. Comparisons with alternative energy sources such as solar and nuclear are made and policy issues are also reviewed. This book, which is very topical as it impacts on the lives of all of us, is multi-authored by experts ensuring expertise across the full range of this highly technical but mainstream subject. It is cutting edge science and technology presented in a highly readable form along with an extensive bibliography.


1. Comparative impacts of fossil fuels and alternative energy sources; 2. Fossil power generation with CCS: policy development for technology deployment; 3. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) in Australia; 4. Underground coal gasification with CCS; 5. Towards zero emission production: potential of carbon capture in an energy intensive industry; 6. Geological storage of CO2; 7. Carbon sequestration in soils; 8. Carbon capture and storage in forests; 9. Carbon uptake, transport and storage by oceans and the consequences of change; 10. Methane biogeochemistry in the Arctic Ocean: hydrates and permafrost
