Description

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 topical book 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.

Back cover copy

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. Carbon Capture: Sequestration and Storage 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 also are reviewed. The book is very topical as its subject matter impacts on the lives of all of us. It is multi-authored by experts, ensuring its authoritative coverage across the full range of this highly technical but mainstream subject. It contains cutting edge science and technology presented in a highly readable form along with an extensive bibliography
