How did we get here?
The climate change story that has gripped the headlines over the past decade and a half has been the burning of fossil fuels.
The burning of oil and gas has been a main driver, along with climate change.
The other big driver has been climate change denial, which has fuelled a global debate on the merits of carbon capture and storage.
As the world grapples with the effects of climate change on people’s lives and livelihoods, the debate has turned to the technology behind carbon capture.
The first carbon capture technology was developed in Germany in the 1960s.
It is a method that involves capturing CO2 from the atmosphere.
The technology has since been adopted by more than 40 countries around the world.
Carbon capture technology involves a device that collects carbon dioxide from the air, using an electric motor to drive a pipe that runs under the ground.
The carbon dioxide is then captured and stored in a vessel, where it can be used as fuel.
The process is known as carbon capture-and-storage.
How does this work?
When a carbon dioxide molecule is captured by a device, it is compressed and heated in a tank.
Once the carbon dioxide has been compressed and cooled, it enters the container that contains the carbon capture device.
If the CO2 molecules that are trapped in the carbon tank are too small to capture in the tank, they are released and the process is repeated.
This process is called gasification.
The CO2 that is released can then be converted to a chemical by reacting it with oxygen.
This reaction takes place in the tanks of the device that has captured the carbon.
When the process of carbon-capture is complete, the CO 2 that has been trapped can be released into the atmosphere by means of the carbon-fixing technology.
The carbon dioxide can then flow through a pipe, which carries the carbon to another vessel.
While the technology is a long way from being used commercially, it has shown some promise as a carbon-absorbing device that can help to limit the emissions of CO2 emissions from power plants.
The key to its success, however, lies in its ability to capture CO2 at low concentrations.
The system works by using carbon dioxide to absorb some of the sunlight and convert it into water.
The amount of water required for this process varies with the carbon content of the CO, but it is generally less than 10 parts per million.
In a recent article for the Australian Institute of Petroleum Geosciences, Dr Adam Latham from the University of Western Australia and his colleagues compared the technology to other techniques used in the extraction of carbon dioxide.
They found that, while they were able to capture the CO that was emitted from burning fossil fuels, the technology had little effect on CO2 concentration in the atmosphere, and was limited in the range of concentration needed.
The researchers say that the technology can only capture about 10 parts of the total amount of CO 2 emitted by burning fossil fuel, so it would be impractical to use the technology for large-scale operations.
So how does the technology work?
A gasifier uses a gas, such as methane, to capture carbon dioxide gas from the ground and turn it into a liquid.
Once it is mixed with water and oxygen, it can then enter the container with the CO gas.
Dr Latham and his team compared the carbon captured from the CO system to the amount of carbon captured by burning a fossil fuel in the system.
They determined that the carbon extracted from CO2-capturing systems had the lowest concentrations of CO and NOx, about half that of CO-based systems.
However, their research also showed that, despite the relatively small amount of the gas captured by the CO-captured system, the concentration of CO did not differ significantly between CO- and NO-based system.
This means that the CO captured by CO-and NO-captures could potentially be used for capturing CO emissions from other sources.
What is the downside of CO emissions?
It is generally agreed that CO emissions are the biggest contributor to global warming, as they contribute significantly to warming of the atmosphere and oceans.
The latest report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concluded that emissions from fossil fuel combustion and oil and natural gas extraction have been responsible for more than half of global warming since 1990.
It also found that CO2 concentrations in the air have been increasing in the past five decades.
To tackle the problem, the Australian Government has pledged to reduce its emissions by about 5 per cent by 2020 and to limit its emissions to 5 per per cent below 2005 levels by 2030.
This is expected to reduce the annual carbon dioxide emissions by an additional 3 billion tonnes by 2020, and by another 3 billion tonne by 2030, and reduce emissions by 2 billion tonnes of CO.
