A comprehensive resource on different aspects of sustainable carbon capture technologies including recent process developments, environmentally friendly methods, and roadmaps for implementations. It discusses also the socio-economic and policy aspects of carbon capture and the challenges, opportunities, and incentives for change with a focus on industry, policy, and governmental sector. Through applications in various fields of environmental health, and four selected case studies from four different practical regimes of carbon capture, the book provides guidelines for sustainable and responsible carbon capture and addresses current and future global energy, environment, and climate concerns.
