The future of coal: new carbon capture technologies

With Gareth Carpenter and Ross McCracken

July 13, 2016 06:52:08 EST (10:27)

As the most emissions-heavy fuel, coal is a clear target of climate regulation across much of the world, with several countries, including the UK, having announced zero coal targets.

Providing around 30% of global primary energy supply, and 50% in Asia alone, it appears we cannot live with coal in climate terms, but cannot live without it in some way in energy terms. A potential solution to this problem is clean coal technology and in particular Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).

In this video, Ross McCracken and Gareth Carpenter discuss developments that might radically alter the economics of CCS as an emergent technology.
