Large-scale carbon capture and storage for coal-fired power: Effect on carbon dioxide emissions and global warming
MetadataShow full item record
- CICERO Reports 
The scenarios in this report show that large-scale deployment of carbon capture and storage technologies for new coal-fired power plants from year 2015 may reduce global CO2 emissions by 8-18% by 2030 and 22-25% by 2100. By 2100 global warming is reduced from 4.9 to 4.4 °C. These estimates are sensitive to the Business-as-Usual scenarios chosen, both for total CO2 emissions and for power production based on coal, and to other assumptions, such as the climate sensitivity.
