Position paper of the Board of Trustees of Global Energy Solutions

An excerpt: “We welcome the flexible cycle model pursued by the association, which does not name fossil fuels per se as the core problem, but the burning of these fossil fuels in such way that CO2 is released into the atmosphere. As far as possible this must be prevented. Hence, the focus is on technical cycles that always have to start with capturing the CO2 at the site of combustion processes. The captured CO2 is then either returned to the caverns from which it was previously extracted, for example, or the CO2 is combined with low carbon hydrogen to produce various synthetic energy sources or fuels. These are then used again elsewhere, potentially capturing the CO2 again, etc., whereby multiple cycles can be run, and corresponding CO2 sinks created.”
