A vision for zero emission fossil fuel power plants
Climate change is one of the most serious single challenges faced by humankind today. Probably one of the greatest impacts in reducing CO2 emissions will be made by the introduction of Zero Emission Fossil Fuel Power Plants including carbon dioxide capture and storage. The formation of the European Technology Platform on Zero Emission Fossil Fuel Power Plants (ZEP) confirms the EU's continued commitment to its leadership role in reducing CO2 emissions and the immense challenge of keeping the average global temperature increase below 2°C relative to pre-industrial level. The ZEP Technology... Platform will play a crucial role in enabling the EU to fulfil this commitment and has the goal that new competitive options will be developed and deployed for Zero Emission Fossil Fuel Power Plants within the next 15 years and hence help European industry to compete effectively on world markets.
