Ultimately-efficient utilization of fossil fuels as the best way to reduce CO2 emissions

Approximately 80 % of total primary energy supply depends on coal, oil  and natural gas, and this dependency will be almost unchanged in the not-too-distant future according to a recent IEA (International Energy Agency) world energy outlook. It is thus probable that ultimately-efficient utilization of fossil fuels is the best way in order to reduce CO2 emissions in a carbon-constrained economy. The laboratory has therefore been focusing every effort on fundamental research about advanced and novel technologies for low rank coals, heavy oil residues and low-valued natural gas.
