The author discusses the development of carbon capture and storage (CCS) being encouraged by the British government. Government officials stated that coal power stations are required to have CCS fitted to their full capacity by 2025. Any new coal power station in England and Wales are also now required to include commercial scale CCS demonstration. The author believes in the potential for CCS to decarbonize fossil fuel plant, but is critical of the technology's commercial viability.
