Making Mission Possible - Delivering A Net-Zero Economy, published by the Energy Transitions Commission (ETC) in September 2020, suggests decarbonisation solutions are: ‘…technologies or business models that reduce anthropogenic carbon emissions by unit of product or service delivered though energy productivity improvement, fuel/feedstock switch, process change or carbon capture. This does not necessarily entail a complete elimination of CO2 use, since (i) fossil fuels might still be used combined with CCS/U, (ii) the use of biomass or synthetic fuels can result in the release of CO2, which would have been previously sequestered from the atmosphere though biomass growth or direct air capture, and (iii) CO2 might still be embedded in the materials (eg, in plastics).’
