Transcript

  • 1. Problems and Benefits of Carbon Sequestration
  • 2. High Price of Installing Carbon Capture Systems
    • Coal Power Plants who use carbon capture technology require 30% more energy than power plants who don’t use carbon capture.
  • 3. Reduced Emissions
    • However, Coal Power Plants which use sequestration reduced their emissions by as much as 85%!
  • 4. Installing Carbon Capture Technology
    • Power Plants which are retrofitted with carbon capture and the ability to sequester it spent 50% more than plants that were built with carbon capture already installed.
  • 5. How Should We Encourage Installment of Carbon Capture?
    • There is a much higher chance for power plants to be built with carbon capture if they know that there will be a $100 per ton of CO2 penalty within 7 years of the plant being built.
    • To encourage more plants being built and retrofitted with carbon capture technology states need to have penalties for how much CO2 power plants emit.
  • 6. Why Carbon Sequestration?
    • Carbon Sequestration is the way to go. As the technology develops the price of installing carbon capture and sequestration technology will go down. The benefits of this technology are great and should be utilized to help make the planet a greener place.
