The Kemper Project uses innovative technology to give power to Mississippi and keep the State’s environment clean by preventing pollutants from entering the atmosphere. The plant is a first-of-its-kind in the US. And it’s a plant that is very interesting to energy and government leaders around the world.
Major energy forecasts shows that fossil fuels——coal, in particular——are essential to meeting future energy demand and ensuring economic security and stability through fuel diversity. Recent advances in Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS)——which is a key technology being used at Kemper——and CO2 utilization technologies suggest that energy and economic goals can be met in balance with environmental priorities.
Two organizations that are very focused on this issue are The Atlantic Council and the Global CCS Institute. They recognize the need for the further development and broader deployment of energy and industrial technologies capable of reducing emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases, such as carbon capture and storage (CCS) and CO2 utilization.
This video, from The Atlantic Council, shows how important CCS is on the global stage.
