Hydrocarbons will continue to serve as an essential energy source while the world transitions to a lower-carbon energy economy, but can we prevent the use of those fuels from contributing to the accumulation of CO2 in the atmosphere?
Existing technologies can capture carbon, but these methods can be costly and energy-intensive. Extracting energy without burning fuels, improving CO2 capture efficiencies if they are burned, and finding effective ways to store or reuse captured carbon may be essential to ensuring it does not enter the atmosphere.
