MIT Technology Review;Jan/Feb2015, Vol. 118 Issue 1, p84
The article focuses on the construction of a carbon capture and storage (CCS) commercial power plant in Saskatchewan. Topics include how the power plant model could help with greenhouse gas mitigation, the cost of construction of such plants, and the environmental law recommendations made by the United Nations (UN) Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
