Is Carbon Capture and Sequestration Indispensable for India to Reach Net-Zero?

ACS Webinars India

It is more important than ever for large, industrialized nations like India and the United States to reduce their impact on worldwide emissions as we continue to exploit fossil fuels on the path to decarbonization. Is carbon capture technology enough to offset the continued use of fossil fuels over the next decades?

Join Professor Vikram Vishal (Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay,  Mumbai), listed in the top 2% of energy scientists in the world by a Clarivate-Stanford Study in 2020 and 2021, as he shares how India’s energy and climate goals can be addressed concurrently by incorporating carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) into the national development plans. The talk will discuss how India can overcome barriers to sequestering carbon and the impact of CCUS in an era of decarbonization while still exploiting fossil fuels.

This ACS Webinar is moderated by Dr. Anirban Mahapatra of the American Chemical Society and co-produced with ACS International catering to an audience based in India.
