Post-combustion carbon capture and storage (CCS) is impartial. It is a suite of technologies that can be applied – yes, to coal – but likewise to other industries also wanting to see substantial cuts in their carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
One of the misconceptions of the drive toward climate action is the oft-misdirected targeting of sectors. Alternatively, it is the emissions associated with sectors that are the center-point to lessen anthropogenic greenhouse gases (GHGs). As coal, along with oil and gas, are bastions in power and energy, so are cement and steel for industrial areas. So, to achieve global emission reductions goals while also fostering prosperity, rapid and wide adoption of large-scale CCS is needed across sectors.
