Video on Carbon Capture and Sequestration

Our own Scott Anderson is one of the experts featured in a new video on Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS). The video explains why CCS is an important tool in cutting emissions, and gives an animated description of how it works. It’s a good companion to Scott’s blog post on CCS.

    > It sounds so wonderful, I almost forgot that nobody with the money to do this is serious about anything except rejuvinating oil wells and PR. It is being used to justify new coal-burning plants, but the carbon-capture part is as nebulous as nuclear waste storage. “Studies must be done. . . “

    Response from Scott Anderson:

    Carbon capture technology, while expensive, is already well established and used around the world. The oil industry has been injecting large volumes of CO2 for decades without significant problems. And there are three well-established demonstration projects that have been verified with specially designed monitoring protocols: Sleipner, Weyburn and In Salah (also one now in Australia). Plus several large-scale projects from the Department of Energy Regional Partnership Program are currently entering the deployment stage.

    CCS should be considered an essential tool – along with a number of other greenhouse gas control measures, such as energy efficiency and renewables – to help successfully combat climate change.
