Using Carbon Capture and Storage CCS Techniques in Mulla Abdulla and Taza Power Plants to Mitigate the Impact of Climate Change

Fossil fuel-fired power plants are responsible for around one-third of total global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. They are therefore thought to be prime candidates for the application of CO2 capture and storage techniques. This article looks at Mulla Abdulla and Taza power plants in Kirkuk/ Iraq, where the aim is to mitigate the impact of climate change by reducing the amount of CO2 emitted to the atmosphere while using carbon capture and storage techniques.
