Brainstorming workshop on Renewable Energy (RE): Carbon capture and storage (CCS), December 18-19, 2014.

Following recommendations emerged out of the discussions:

CO2 emissions need to be assessed as a resource along with the coal and power output for its sustainability and conservation. The excess CO2 in the atmosphere which is not utilised may be linked to the carbon grid networks (centre as well as state) and thus to be used for many purposeful industrial option in a sustainable, efficient, and cost effective manner on a long term basis. Sustainable management of CO2 emission offers an alternate source of CBM exploration in the coal mining belts/ thermal power plants.

For sustainable production of energy supply and environmental protection completed and comprehensive plans are required to be drawn based on the CO2 hot spot frame work for conservation and management of carbon resources due to mining activities resulting into an imbalance in the carbon cycle.

CO2 mapping program needs to be taken up to understand and develop a relationship with land and energy resources for assessment, conservation and sustainable management of land and energy resources and their development.

For the purpose of modelling and simulation of CO2 system for planning of carbon resources, the applications of suitable software to be designed by CERD members.

Capacity building measures of power engineers and geologists apart from other scientific personnel is required by introducing oriented training programmes.

Forests cover about 25-30% area of the country which can be fully utilised for CO2 conservation and CCS technique. This may be made a mandatory scheme of the new Forest Policy of Government of India.

Inaugural Meeting-cum-workshop, at Mechanical Engg. Deptt. IIT (BHU) Varanasi, on 19th January 2015: A detailed discussion was held in this workshop with eminent persons from other IITs and industries to decide future directions of CERD.
