US Carbon Capture & Storage

May 16, 2012

At FiveBarGate we have spent time over recent months in the USA talking to a number of companies seeking to supply fibre from the south east US fibre basket into EU power systems. Each of these suppliers sees Europe as their key market for their wood fibre products in the short to medium term.

This doesn’t mean the US doesn’t take decarbonising our environment seriously. Their response highlights a different approach: supporting technology investment in carbon capture and storage. I have recently posted to twitter a map showing where a range of different technologies are being deployed.

So the question for the UK is can we create through support mechanisms like the Green Deal technology lead responses to the climate challenges we face.
