Concern over the possible linkage between rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide and global warming has led to international agreements to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. The main contributor to the increasing levels of CO2 in the atmosphere is fossil fuel combustion for power generation, transportation, industry, and domestic use. There are technologies available which accomplish the capture of CO2 from combustion sources but at present they are extremely cost prohibitive. GRACE sets out a two-year programme that aims to develop technologies that will achieve a step change in the cost of capture and separation of carbon dioxide. In addition to further development of existing technologies, the project will research and develop new technologies from their current concept stages to feasible working models.
