Here is an interesting press release from a French company I just learned of. The intent is to recover CO2 from the stacks of power generating facilities in Sweden.

Has anyone else seen somehting like this?

I'm curious to see how they perform the long-term storage or removal of the recovered CO2.

The 2007 UK Energy policy was published in a white paper a few weeks ago.

They are taking carbon capture very seriously. Much of it could be stored indefinitely in ex-gas fields - which we have in abundance.

I Shall try & upload an article recently published by one company in USA who has patented a design to catch the Co2 from atmosphere. That is really fascinating.
