FUTURE & ALTERNATIVE?

CO2 STORAGE

  • We should not forget that the oxygen that we breathe now is in great part reduction by photosynthesis of CO2 millions years ago.
  • Mankind emits 1,022 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere every second, in other words, 32.000 million tons each year. 23.270 million tons of oxygen are associated to these 32.000 million tons of CO2.
  • If we bury these 32 * GT of CO2 23 GT of oxygen will disappear along with the carbon, in other words, a part of our oxygen will be buried each year.
  • CCS (Carbon Capture and Storage) The operational costs of separating CO2 from the rest of the flue gases and then burying it underground are very high. This workload does not produce any revenue and there is no way to guarantee the stability of the storage underground.
  • DAC (Direct Capture of CO2 from the atmosphere) This requires a huge amount of energy which implies significant CO2 emissions, the energy used will emit 70 kg of CO2 per each ton of CO2 filtered from the atmosphere.
