About this book

Despite the drive to develop renewable sources of energy, fossil fuels will continue to play a significant role in meeting energy demand worldwide, and chief among these is coal. But with climate change concerns coming to the fore the emissions from burning coal cannot be acceptable. The answer is geosequestration, or as it is more commonly known Carbon Capture Storage. This book looks into how capturing carbon dioxide that would otherwise be emitted to the atmosphere can be captured, compressed, transported to a suitable site, and injected into deep geological formations where it will be trapped for thousands or millions of years.
