Carbon Capture Power Stations

Carbon Capture Power Stations
Despite attempts to develop alternatives technologies to fossil fuels, coal is expected to remain one of the world's major sources of energy for the next 50 years. One potential way to mitigate some of the harm caused by burning fossil fuels such as coal in power stations would be to fit carbon dioxide capturing technology.
Carbon capturing systems extract carbon dioxide from power station fumes and pump the captured gas into deep underground cavities or into the ocean.
The government believes carbon dioxide capturing technology could remove 90 per cent of the CO2 released by Britain's fossil fuel power stations, and alone achieve almost one third of the country's emission-cut targets. Carbon capture technology is, however, still unproven at industrial scale.
