International carbon capture talks successful

International carbon capture talks successful
Discussions on carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology closed in London yesterday (Tuesday, October 13th).

International delegates admitted that finance is the most difficult aspect behind the successful development and deployment of the technology.

The conference participants also agreed that more than 20 CCS projects, which are of industrial scale, would be needed by 2020.

CCS is a technology through which carbon can be captured and stored under the earth's surface in order to prevent it from entering the atmosphere.

Ed Miliband, the climate change secretary, said: "Today some of the world's biggest coal consuming nations have shown business as usual on coal won't do.

"There's agreement that we need countries around the world to finance demonstrations, as we are doing in the UK, we need technology co-operation for know-how and capacity building and a financing agreement at Copenhagen which can drive CCS forwards in developing countries."
