Global energy demand is increasing continuously, driven by demographic growth and a steady rise in living standards, particularly in emerging countries. This energy is still predominantly produced using fossil resources – oil, natural gas and coal – which generate CO2 emissions and contribute to global warming.
Reconciling economic development with protection of the environment through the control of these emissions has thus become a matter of urgency. CO2 capture and storage represent a very promising approach to achieving massive reductions.
In addition, industry uses water in numerous ways, particularly for energy production or CO2 capture and storage. The eco-efficient management of water ressources is essential in order to reduce the water footprint of industry.
