 Need to Address Problems Arising Out of Carbon Dioxide Emission

Union Minister of Railways, Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu said it was imperative that challenges and problems arising out of carbon dioxide emissions are addressed approximately.

The Minister released a book "Carbon Capture, Storage and Utilization (CCSU)" which deals with the issue of mitigating climate change concerns arising out of emission of carbon dioxide in atmosphere.

It is a collection of papers prepared by eminent authors. R.V. Shahi is the Former Power Secretary, Govt. of India, Malti Goel, Former Advisor in the Ministry of Science and Technology, and M. Sudhakar, Advisor/Scientist, Ministry of Earth Sciences.

Prabhu said that the Ministry of Railways is the biggest consumer of energy in the country. While it mostly uses electricity and diesel but now using alternate sources of energy like wind, solar, CNG and Bio fuels.

Referring to the energy scenario in the country, he said that while India is making vigorous efforts to use alternate sources of energy like solar energy, wind geo thermal, bio fuels but our dependence on fossil fuel will continue for many years.

Global efforts in this direction, particularly during last ten years, have raised some optimism that in coming years Carbon Capture and Storage could become a reality and very soon thereafter could even become cost effective. All efforts have to be mobilized to see that these technologies become relevant for developing economies to adapt.

It should be the responsibility of developed economies to share the findings of various researches, so that these become affordable for developing economies. Indian Industry and Research Institutions have also to do and contribute much more than they have been doing so far.
