Carbon Sequestration

7- 1 Overview Carbon sequestration is the key to long-term sustainable use of fossil fuels. Without sequestration, it will not be possible to make significant use of these fuels while at the same time stabilizing the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere. In the short term, it is possible to sequester some carbon currently emitted […]

Endpoint Technologies for a Petroleum – and Carbon-Free Transportation System

Transportation energy technologies that replace the use of petroleum for trans­portation as currently practiced must (1) be based on a more abundant supply of energy and (2) avoid permanently increasing the concentration of carbon in the atmosphere to avert climate change. Note that the second requirement does not preclude a carbon-based energy source. It also […]
