CSIRO proposes solar powered CO2 dumps to keep coal industry alive

Solar CO2 dump: CSIRO was constructing a pilot PCC plant in
Newcastle coupled with solar power and research across a range of
areas, including:

• low-emissions technologies for fossil fuel use and efficient coal production;

• renewable energy and energy storage systems;

• potential use of hydrogen in the energy cycle;

• distributed energy generation and energy management; and

• reduction of the environmental consequences of energy use.
