Co2 capture; technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.


Co2 capture; technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

IFP publications


With the growing presence of global warming, technologies for CO2 capture are increasingly important and this volume outlines three main pathways toward this goal. These can roughly be broken down into pre-combustion, during combustion, and post-consumption strategies. Mostly written by employees of IFP, a French non-profit aimed at moving energy and transport in a sustainable direction, it begins with data drawn mostly from France about the current industrial sources of greenhouse gases, and ends with a brief chapter outlining economic considerations. The volume is translated and the currencies are still in euros. Contains a helpful appendix of worldwide CO2 capture projects, a brief glossary and a list of abbreviations, but no index.
