CCS Economics
In my previous two posts (Carbon Capture Technologies and Carbon Sequestration Technologies), I took a look at some of the most promising technologies for capturing carbon-dioxide from coal-fired power plants and for sequestering captured carbon-dioxide for long time periods. When integrated, these technologies...
