Ministers agree 20 big CCS plants needed by 2010

LONDON (Reuters) - Twenty commercial scale carbon capture and storage projects need to be started by 2010 to cap emissions from fossil fuel burning, energy ministers at the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum agreed on Tuesday.

“The 20 industrial-scale demonstration projects by 2010 endorsed by the G8 are vital,” the forum, a ministerial-level grouping of 23 countries, said in a statement after a meeting in London.
