When you take the gas that is extracted from the ground, what you’re actually consuming is methane gas.
This is a form of greenhouse gas.
It has the ability to warm the planet.
But unlike carbon dioxide, methane can’t be stored indefinitely.
This means that when the natural gas is burnt to generate electricity, it has to be taken off the grid.
And it’s not only the electricity industry that can’t rely on it.
The UK’s National Grid said this week that it had a total of 13,000 coal fired generators.
“This is the largest number of coal-fired generators in the UK,” said Andrew Gee, an adviser to the company.
“We are the first to say that they are not as clean as coal.
But the government has committed to using more renewable energy to make up for the loss.”
The problem for the government is that it doesn’t have the infrastructure to get the gas off the grids quickly enough.
So the Government’s new Climate Change Act will mean that the UK’s electricity generators have to install gas shut-off devices by 2020.
The devices can be installed on the grid as early as 2020, but only if a new carbon capture technology is developed.
This will help ensure that the gas is removed from the grid at a safe level.
The technology involves injecting a small amount of gas into the ground and using an electrode to trap carbon dioxide.
This then forms a chemical reaction that releases methane gas, a greenhouse gas which can then be taken out of the air.
“If you look at the world we live in today, the gas we burn is the equivalent of burning 100 million tonnes of coal,” said David Bell, from the Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) programme at Imperial College London.
“That’s equivalent to burning about 6,000 tonnes of fossil fuels a day, so it’s a lot of energy.”
As part of this programme, a company called Carbon Energy will start the process of capturing carbon dioxide and releasing it into the atmosphere.
They’ll use a device called a ‘stranded gas-extraction unit’ which is a small tube attached to a large tank that has a device inside to trap it.
When this device is plugged into a generator, the device releases the gas.
The device is attached to the generator at a fixed distance, and the device is connected to the grid via a cable.
The gas is pumped into a tank and then released into the air using a pipeline.
This pipeline is called the gas transfer pipeline and is the most efficient way to move the gas from the gas field to the natural-gas grid.
But it will take more than a year for the CO 2 emissions from gas extraction to be released to the atmosphere, and carbon capture and storage is a costly process.
In 2016, a consortium of companies called Carbon Capture & Storage (CCC&S) submitted their proposal to the Government for a new gas capture and sequestration facility, but the proposal was put on hold because the CO 3 emissions from carbon capture would exceed the costs.
This was a significant blow to the CCS&S team.
“The government said they would be able to meet the CO3 emissions by 2020, so they’ve put us in a really bad situation,” said Bell.
The Government has pledged to introduce a new system by 2020 that would take a year to fully implement.
“A new generation of carbon capture is needed to replace the existing CO2 capture systems,” said Gee.
“It’s a very big project, and it’s going to take years to implement, but I think that the carbon capture system is going to save lives.”
It’s unclear if the new technology will be ready for commercial use by 2020 and there are concerns about its cost.
The government says it is investing £1.6 billion to develop a new method to capture CO 2 and release it into a natural gas system.
“There is an enormous amount of work that needs to be done, so the technology is going through testing and testing, and we need to make sure that it works,” said George Robertson, from CCS’s carbon capture project.
“But there is a lot that we can do to ensure that we are in a position to be able deliver this.”
Gee said that the Government was “very much aware of the concerns” about the technology and has taken steps to reduce the cost of the technology.
But he says that there is still work to be performed.
“When you’re talking about a big infrastructure project, it’s very hard to get all the right people together in a single room and then make it happen,” he said.
“They need to be working together to get it right, and they need to put it in the public domain.”
The new technology is due to be rolled out to gas producers by 2021.
But with the Government promising to release carbon dioxide from the natural field by 2020 there is an urgency to get this technology on the market as quickly as possible
