The article reports that the European Commission's call for carbon capture and storage on all new coal-fired power plant by 2020 is premature. The European electricity industry group said it does not make sense to take decisions on plant design before commercial viability is demonstrated and pointed out that it should first be determined whether storage capacity for the carbon dioxide was available.
