Carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology in the UK would generate jobs and create a market worth £15 billion ($24.5 billion) to £35 billion ($57 billion) by 2030, according to a joint report by the Trades Union Congress (TUC) and the Carbon Capture and Storage Association (CCSA).
The report, The Economic Benefits of CCS in the UK , says the government should take action to boost CCS — and the economy.
