Technological Issues in Carbon Capture Hardback
Edited by James P. Bernard
Carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) is widely seen as a critical strategy for limiting atmospheric emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), the principal "greenhouse gas" linked to global climate change from power plants and other large industrial sources.
This book focuses on the first component of a CCS system, the CO2 capture process.
Unlike the other two components of CCS, transportation and geologic storage, the CO2 capture component of CCS is heavily technology-dependent.
For CCS to succeed at reducing CO2 emissions from a significant fraction of large sources in the United States, CO2 capture technologies would need to be deployed widely
