Regarding ‘IEA calls for massive investments in carbon capture‘:
It is interesting to do the maths on some of the roadmap proposals from the International Energy Agency.
- 100 operational CCS plants by 2020? The EU is struggling to have 12 demonstration plants by 2015. So?
- 3400 CCS plants worldwide by 2050: that’s one every four days. Realistic?
- The report also mentions the need for 360,000 km of pipeline: that is nine times the circumference of the Earth. Where do we get all the steel?
