1. What are the latest developments in CO2 sequestration at coal plants? I understand that there are a few pilot plants world over, but do you think the existing capture processes – pre-combustion, post-combustion and oxy-fuel combustion – along with the storage ideas (saline aquifers or depleted oil fields for EOR) will do the job?
