The grand plan for carbon capture
Most people know the Paris Agreement for its noble and ambitious goal: keeping the global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees. However, whilst this promise was welcomed by a vast majority of scientists, questions are still pending regarding the deployment of some of the technologies required for all signatories to keep it. ‘Carbon capture and sequestration’ (CCS) technologies are among these. Various reports have highlighted the critical role that CCS could play in meeting the climate goals set in the Paris Agreement. Scientists across Europe have been working relentlessly to raise more interest in CCS. Thanks to funding under FP7 and H2020, new infrastructure, industrial pilots, decision making tools, technology improvements and brand new CCS systems are all under way. In fact, some of these solutions are so close that seven of them are sharing the spotlight for this new edition of the Research*EU Magazine.
As usual, the special feature is followed by highlights across nine themes of research: health, society, transport, environment, agriculture and forestry, industry, information and communication technology, space and fundamental research. The magazine closes with a list of upcoming events hosted by or involving EU-funded research projects.
