More efforts are needed to promote widespread CCS adoption, says PESD researcher Gang He

in the news: China Dialogue on March 1, 2010

Gang He is featured in China Dialogue's article, "The Science of Storage." Gang shared that more efforts such as investigations, RD&Ds, and international financial mechanisms are needed to promote CCS adoption. The technology of carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a viable option to reducing emissions -that is neither energy inefficient or high in cost- and has taken a prominent position in climate change policy around the world. In the last couple of years, many countries have begun demonstration projects but some argue more is needed. The article goes on to explain the process of CCS and key issues surrounding its development.
