Slashing emissions from hard-to-abate sectors of the global economy can happen in many ways — but two main paths stand out. One is the use of carbon-free electricity, either directly or in the form of "e-fuels," namely green hydrogen and derived molecules such as ammonia and synthetic hydrocarbons. The second involves the continued use of carbon and its subsequent capture — either with technology via carbon capture and storage (CCS), or through the natural cycle of carbon when biomass is being used. While direct electrification is always technically possible, the choice between routes will be strongly influenced by the price at which zero-carbon electricity is available locally, experts say.
