Summary

Summary

This IPCC Special Report describes sources, capture, transport, and storage of CO2. It discusses the costs, economic potential, and societal issues of the technology, including public perception and regulatory aspects. Storage options evaluated include geological storage, ocean storage, and mineral carbonation. The report places CO2 capture and storage in the context of other climate change mitigation options. The volume includes a Summary for Policymakers approved by governments represented in the IPCC, and a Technical Summary. It provides invaluable information for researchers in environmental science, geology, engineering and the oil and gas sector, policy-makers in governments and environmental organizations, and scientists and engineers in industry.
