At a time when fossil fuels provide more than 85% of the world’s energy their combustion in combination with other anthropogenic activities has brought humanity face to face with a major threat that is becoming more urgent than ever. This threat is none other than the infamous environmental disaster, which along with the continuous increase in human energy needs, mandates a holistic shift towards sustainable development methods. An effort is made to develop new-innovative technologies for producing, capturing and storing energy, based on inexhaustible resources which will be more environmentally friendly. Carbon capture and sequestration (Carbon dioxide is the main greenhouse gas), will lead the way to meet human needs without this being against the environment.The current thesis examines innovative and efficient technologies for carbon dioxide capture. Additionally, it provides an analysis of the way anthropogenic activities affect the climate crisis while it investigates the impact of the pandemic COVID-19 on it. Furthermore, this study focuses on the effort to confront the climate crisis as both a European and Global initiative. Finally, it is important to mention that both transport and storage of CO2 will be discussed as well.
