According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), greenhouse gases (GHGs) will increase the average global temperature from1.1 to 6.4 oC by the end of the 21stcentury. Global warming of more than 2oC increase in global average temperature will lead to serious consequences such as melting of glaciers, sea level will rise, climate change with more floods and draughts. Ecosystems will be disrupted, and 15 to 40 percent of all species can be extinct. CO2 is one of the greenhouse gases (GHGs) that has to be curbed. Carbon capture and storage is an important strategy to reduce global CO2 emissions. According to IPCC, global GHG emissions should be reduced by 50 to 80 percent by 2050.Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is widely regarded as a key technology in the medium term to reduce carbon emissions from the energy industry during the transition to renewable energy generation, and in the longer term to decarbonise refining, iron and steel, cement, chemical and other industries
