The Strategic Case for CCS in a Hydrogen Economy
- Oct 31, 2020 7:44 pm GMT
In making the case for a particular approach to the problem of CO2 emissions, two different aspects need to be addressed. One is technical merit: is the approach feasible from an engineering perspective, is it scalable to the degree needed to make a difference, is it environmentally benign, etc. I’ll have a few things to say about that side of the approach I’m covering here. However, technical merit is only part of the story.
Equally important is the strategic aspect. Who will support it, who will oppose it, what resources can they bring to bear? Can the approach be expected to navigate the political, economic, and social waters it must traverse on its way to implementation? And if implemented, how will it fit in with other programs to improve social, economic, and environmental conditions? Can it successfully contribute to the goal of slashing atmospheric CO2 emissions? Those can be hard questions to answer, but they’re vitally important.
