Lecture on "Carbon Capture and Sequestration - Implications and Opportunities for India"

Prof Anjan Ray, Director, CSIR-IIP Dehradun, delivered the Keynote Address and lecture in EEC series on “Carbon Capture and Sequestration - Implications and Opportunities for India”. He said the energy sector is in a state of significant transformation with increased global demand and limited supply of natural resources. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is the process of capturing waste carbon dioxide (CO2) usually from large point sources, such as a power plants or cement factory, transporting it to a storage site, and depositing it normally an underground geological formation. CCS applied to a modern conventional power plant could reduce CO2 emissions to the atmosphere by approximately 80–90% compared to a plant without CCS. At the sometime we need to take some action to replace carbon energy with non-carbon energy, imported carbon with domestic carbon and set policy mechanisms for pricing of carbon.

The Climate Change Research Institute (CCRI) organized the fourth Awareness and Capacity Building Workshop on Carbon Capture & Utilization on August 29th – September 1st, 2018 at India International Centre. Honorable Shri Suresh Prabhu, Union Minister for Commerce, Industry and Civil aviation, Government of India inaugurated the workshop. Prof. D.P. Agrawal, Chairman GC presided over the event and highlighted the importance of technology in economically and environmentally sustainable growth. Dr. (Mrs.) Malti Goel, Chief Executive, CCRI gave the introduction remarks. She observed that CO2 being the main product of fossil fuel use, developing capabilities in CO2 capture and goal oriented utilization in products of scarcity can lead to potential benefits in the short and medium term.
