'Developments & Innovations in CCS Technology' two-volume book set edited by Professor Maroto-Valer

Carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage is the one advanced technology that conventional power generation cannot do without. CCS technology reduces the carbon footprint of power plants by capturing, and storing the CO2 emissions from burning fossil-fuels and biomass. Capture technology ranges from post- and pre-combustion capture to combustion-based capture. Storage options range from geological sequestration in deep saline aquifers and utilisation of CO2 for enhanced oil and gas recovery, to mineral carbonation and biofixation of CO2.

Volume 1 of Professor Maroto-Valer's two-volume set critically reviews carbon capture processes and technology applicable to the conventional power generation sector as well as other high carbon footprint industries. Volume 2 of this two-volume set critically critically reviews carbon storage and utilisation, covering all the main geological, terrestrial and ocean sequestration options and their environmental impacts, as well as other advanced concepts such as utilisation and photocatalytic reduction.

Professor Maroto-Valer is Director of the Centre for Innovation in Carbon Capture and Storage (CICCS), University of Nottingham, UK, and is noted for her research into energy and environmental technologies, with particular emphasis on carbon management.
