A Presentation By Sally M. Benson

pixabay cyprus 1265892 180Today our energy generation and industrial process infrastructure are primarily fed by coal, oil and natural gas. If global climate change is caused by our combustion of these carbon based fuels, then imagine if we could just prevent the greenhouse gas CO₂ from being emitted into the atmosphere. We could preserve our massive infrastructure investment while reducing the threat of global climate change. Sally M Benson, Director of the Global Climate and Energy Project (GCEP) at Stanford University, is a leader in the effort to invent this technology for CO₂ capture and sequestration. How real is carbon sequestration as a solution? What technologies are most promising? What is the roadmap?
