The technology of lowering emissions
Innovation and technology are time-tested ingredients for progress. There is no one answer. Change can come from anywhere.
And the experts agree low emission technologies (LETs) are crucial in reaching our international climate commitments.
LETs are advanced technologies designed to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate other environmental impacts.
They can be used for a number of heavy industries, including power and electricity generation, mining processes, and cement, steel and
A broad range of proven low emission technologies continue to be developed and increase in capability. Carbon capture utilisation and
storage (CCUS) is one type of LET and is removing the equivalent of about 10 million cars worth of emissions every year. From Norway to
Canada, the US, Australia and Japan there are currently 26 working, large scale carbon-capture facilities, removing emissions from steel
and cement manufacturing, refineries and even power stations. There are another 34 in development and three under construction.
