IPCC: Energy is at the heart of the solution to the climate challenge

 

"Our climate challenge is a shared global challenge – and it is largely an energy challenge. Energy accounts for over two-thirds of global greenhouse gas emissions. This means energy must be at the heart of any solution."

Public Policy Forum (2020): Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage — The Time is Now

Public Policy Forum (2020): Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage — The Time is Now.

"This paper reflects a strong consensus within the Energy Future Forum that any achievable pathway to national climate and economic objectives must include a significant contribution from carbon capture technologies and from utilization and storage. In any post-COVID, “green stimulus” planning, support for CCUS expansion is even more pivotal than before."

Eugene J. Kim; et al. (2020): Cooperative carbon capture and steam regeneration with tetraamine-appended metal–organic frameworks

Eugene J. Kim; Rebecca L. Siegelman; Henry Z. H. Jiang; Alexander C. Forse; Jung-Hoon Lee; Jeffrey D. Martell et al. (2020): Cooperative carbon capture and steam regeneration with tetraamine-appended metal–organic frameworks. In Science 369 (6502), pp. 392–396. DOI: 10.1126/science.abb3976.

"Taking inspiration from the crystal structures of diamine-appended metal–organic frameworks exhibiting two-step cooperative CO2 adsorption, we report a family of robust tetraamine-functionalized frameworks that retain cooperativity, leading to the potential for exceptional efficiency in capturing CO2 under the extreme conditions relevant to natural gas flue emissions."

Asian Development Bank (2019): Background Study on CCUS Readiness in Power, Iron and Steel, Cement and Petroleum Sectors

Asian Development Bank (2019): Background Study on CCUS Readiness in Power, Iron and Steel, Cement and Petroleum Sectors.

"This report, Background Study on CCUS Readiness in Power, Steel, Cement, and Petroleum Sectors, aims to help prepare industries for eventual decarbonization with carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) to ensure a smoother transition to a low-carbon era. The paper presents some of the existing and upcoming CCUS technologies, assesses the potential for capture-, transport-, and storage-readiness of major CO2-emitting sectors. It also investigates the financing requirements and mechanisms, as well as policy drivers and recommendations, to advance CCUS readiness."
