This article discusses the role of carbon capture and storage (CCS) in reducing emissions in Europe. It asserts the need for technology to improve the performance of power-plants to achieve target emission reductions. It observes that advocates want apply CCS in gas-fired plants. In addition, the article describes the public support for CCS.
