Modern Power Systems;Sep2008, Vol. 28 Issue 9, p32
The article discusses the report from Yorkshire Agency which indicates the possibility of a carbon capture and storage network at the Yorkshire and Humber region in England. The report also states that 60 tons of carbon dioxide produced in the area every year from concentration of coal and gas fired power plants could be liquefied then pumped out to deplete gas fields under the North Sea.
