Sustainability should be a key component of every process, safeguarding resources and reserves for future generations. This book shows how a responsible use of resources is possible, offering valid technological alternatives to fight climate change. We offer current technologies and valid methods for a wide range of activities: teaching, investigation, work, business and even daily life. We encourage all our readers to join us and become part of the solution to climate change, rather than the problem. After reading this book, we are certain that you will find justified reasons to start your own personal and social awareness campaign in favour of these effective technologies against climate change.

|Deployment of CCS in the cement industry|
A survey by the International Energy Agency Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme (IEAGHG) finds that the majority of respondents in the cement industry think that CCS is relevant to them and are aware of research projects, with half involved in CCS activities.
|The case for urgent action on CCS in Europe|
CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS) will play a critical role in meeting Europe’s energy, climate and societal goals, but its demonstration is essential to achieve commercial availability and public support, and to allow it to be widely applied “from around 2030 onwards”. CCS has reached a ‘tipping point’ in Europe and urgent action is needed at EU and Member State level to deliver a sufficient set of demonstration projects.
|CO2 Capture and Storage: Recommendations for transitional measures to drive deployment in Europe|
In order to identify how low-carbon technologies can decarbonise European power most cost-effectively in the horizon to 2050, the Zero Emissions Platform (ZEP) has developed a model based on an existing model from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and linked to the Global Change Assessment Model (GCAM).
