This article reports on the release of a vision document that outlines options for chemical plants with less emissions, which are currently under consideration by Europe's Technology Platform for Zero Emission Fossil Fuel Plants. It comes amid growing worldwide concern over emission levels which are set to rise before 2030 if left unchecked. Environmental group Friends of the Earth welcomed the document, but warned that the focus on fossil fuels should not detract from other strategies.
