    Carbon capture and storage

    A costly proposal

    The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) sees carbon capture at coal-fired power plants as a key technology in the fight against climate change. The technology itself will soon be ready for market, but the high costs and unresolved storage issue will hamper its introduction.
