Carbon capture and storage
More efforts are needed to promote widespread CCS adoption, says PESD researcher Gang Hein 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.
Richard Morse and Gang He will be present during the first week of the international climate negotiations at the UN’s COP 15. Read more »

PESD releases new working paper on the real drivers of carbon capture and storage in China and implications for climate policy
PESD researchers Richard Morse, Gang He, and Varun Rai offer a cutting-edge analysis of China's carbon capture and sequestration efforts, which are now widely viewed as critical for stabilization of the global climate. They argue that China's energy security interests are the primary drivers of current CCS projects. Contemplating CCS at scale in the Chinese context, they argue that Chinese energy markets present special obstacles for deploying CCS in China and offer insights into how international climate policy can engage this crucial problem.
