Academic Journal
The article reports on the "Capture Ready Study" published by the Energy Technology Conversion subject group of IChemE. It says that the group wants to better define the term capture ready which is used to describe new coal-fired power plants designed with future capture of their carbon dioxide emissions. It states that the group aims to prepare outline qualification definition for whichever authority will be accountable for certifying facilities as capture ready.
