Inexorable Carbon Capture & Sequestration and its Indian Scenario

Title variants
Languages of publication
The drastic increase in the emission of CO2 (carbon dioxide) during the last 30 years caused by fossil fuel combustion has been identified as the major reason for the climate change. Demand for fossil fuels has begun to decline in the developed world, however, demand in developing countries has been rising and will continue to rise. India in its developing phase has been risen as one of the major emitting nations since they hugely rely on fossil fuels. And opting alternate energy sources wouldn’t suffice for meeting the obligatory values of emission. While the global frameworks for climate change demands for limiting the temperature rise within 2 °C, more mitigation technologies other than renewable energy and energy efficiency are searched for, where Carbon Capture & Sequestration pitch in. In this paper we discuss about the capacity of CCS as a climate mitigation tool and additionally evaluates the feasibility of implementation in Indian market.
