DOE: Widespread use of CCS “expected to intensify water stress in some areas”

Editor’s Note: Below is a chart from DOE’s new report “The Water-Energy Nexus: Challenges and Opportunities” estimating the increased water consumption that would result from CCS implementation. DOE explains in the the report (p. 42) that “Even if technological advances in CCS reduce the costs, the water and energy intensities of operating these systems are also potential barriers to deployment.”
