Carbon Capture and Storage in the European Union: The role for combating climate change

Abstract [en]

The urgency of climate change is pressing on the development of different technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions among which carbon dioxide (CO2) is the most abundant. A great source of CO2 is the burning of fossil fuels. The installation of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology could reduce the amount of CO2 released from larger combustion processes by up to 90%. Fossil fuels stand for a great part of the total consumption of energy in the society today. To replace it so rapidly that strict climate change objectives will be reached with only increased energy efficiency and renewable energy would be difficult and would not be the most cost-efficient strategy. To be able to stabilize the atmospheric CO2 level within this decade and in a cost-efficient manner, the development of CCS technologies is clearly needed as a complementary strategy.
