CSIRO scientist says world is burying its "head in the sand" over the need for more carbon capture and storage
The scientist in charge of the geosequestration research arm of the CSIRO says the world can't "bury its head in the sand" over carbon capture and storage (CCS). Dr Linda Stalker says both the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) state large scale deployment of CCS is one of the measures needed to keep global temperatures down. In the geosequestration form of CCS, carbon dioxide emissions are removed from industrial processes, oil and gas and buried. Many emissions intensive industries produce carbon dioxide not only from the energy needed for processes, but the manufacturing systems itself. This includes making products like steel, cement, bricks, iron, chemicals and fertilisers.
