Enabling CO2 capture from coal power plant using membranes

Bloggers: Simon Roussanaly and Rahul Anantharaman Electricity generation from coal represents respectively 41 and 30% of the world and European electricity generation. In this perspective, CCS is considered to be a promising way to reduce CO2 emissions from power production and therefore decrease the climate impact of power generation across the world. Promising technologies for CO2 Read More
