The Royal Society of Chemistry’s recently published book, Carbon Capture and Storage, provides the latest perspectives on this innovative method of combatting global warming.
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies are expected to play an essential role in mitigating the impact of global warming and meeting international temperature targets. The new book – edited by two researchers from Imperial College London – provides a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of the major sources of carbon dioxide emission, as well as the main technologies for carbon capture and storage. It also covers "negative emissions" technologies, and provides insight in the role and value of CCS in the industrial and power sectors.
The editors are Dr Niall MacDowell and Dr Mai Bui, senior lecturer in energy and environmental technology and senior research associate, respectively, in the Centre for Environmental Policy at Imperial College London. The book also includes contributions from internationally recognised leaders in the field, and is aimed at graduate students and researchers in academia and industry, working in chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, and energy policy.
Dr MacDowell and Dr Bui said, "It is increasingly recognised that CCS is vital for meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement, and we will need to deploy it on power, heat, and industrial sources, in addition to removing CO2 from the atmosphere. This book is intended to bring non-experts quickly up to speed with this important area."
The book is available to download or purchase as a hardback from our website.
