CO2 emissions worldwide from the combustion of solid fuels (2009)

Energy: Carbon Capture and Storage – key for the future of coal and other fossil fuels

The global use of coal contributes to more carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere than any other fossil fuel. Yet coal is the fossil fuel most in demand worldwide - and its use is likely to increase. In this special report, the third and final part of this series on coal, GIS expert Dr Frank Umbach looks at the technology of capturing and storing CO2 and the role it will play in reducing the contribution of fossil fuel emissions to global warming while allowing the continued use of coal and other fossil fuels as a source for electricity generation.

MORE carbon dioxide (CO2) is emitted through the world’s use of coal than by any other fossil fuel.
