Carbon fixation and abatement
Mitigation of CO2 emissions requires a modernization of fossil-fuel based industry and processes. Fossil-fuel based carbon abatement technologies enable fossil fuels to be used with substantially reduced CO2 emissions. One possible way is via Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). CCS is a combination of technologies designed to prevent the release of CO2 generated through conventional power generation and industrial production processes by injecting the CO2 in suitable underground storage reservoirs. The CTCN and its network members enable countries to increase carbon fixation and abatement through CCS, more efficient conversion processes, fuel switching and other established and innovative technologies. Below you will find related publications, partners, CTCN technical assistance, technologies and other information for exploring this topic further.
