Carbon Capture & Storage

Tuesday, November 13, 2007

About

With the world facing a major climate crisis, controlling the amount of CO2 released into the atmosphere is crucial. CO2 is the number one contributor to greenhouse gases and thus a significant factor in climate change. But coal plants are still heavily in use today and their popularity is growing in the developing world, where they are seen as a quick, easy and relatively inexpensive solution to their overwhelming energy needs.

How can we balance the world's energy demands, with the necessity to protect the environment and reverse some of the damage that has already been done?
The answer is Carbon Capture and Storage.

New advances in Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) are not only helping to alleviate this negative environmental trend, but presenting significant investment opportunities.

CCS is on the cusp of commercial viability. ACI's inaugural Carbon Capture and Storage publication brings together industry thought-leaders to truly demonstrate the emerging business opportunities and long-term investment returns.
