Résumé

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is essential for a sustainable energy future in a world that faces constraints on the use of carbon but remains - for the foreseeable future - reliant on fossil fuels. CCS has the potential to make a quarter of the emissions reductions required to stabilise the atmospheric concentration of CO2 at 550 parts per million and limit temperature rises to 2°C above pre-industrial levels. Encouragingly, the technologies involved in CCS have been proved independently and capital is available. The big test facing governments is to create a policy environment that will allow companies to put these technologies together safely, at a reasonable cost and on a big enough scale to make a meaningful dent in global CO2 emissions. This book is an up to date assessment of the state of the industry. Extract from the table of contents: large CO2 geological storage demonstration projects; the petroleum industry has the opportunity to reinvent itself; the policy environment in the US, China and in Europe; CO2 and enhanced oil recovery; CO capture: the technology challenge; monitoring CO2 underground; the potential of carbon storage; finding solutions: capturing CO2 from flue gases; establishing carbon-trading markets; project studies (Salah, Weyburn, Statoil and FutureGen).
