information because it's and it is good that we're looking now at the can't touch it or feel it and feel it. and with a lot of poor space between the grains under the north sea, the pools of the sandstone are filled with water. most of the injected c o 2 dissolves in it, turning it into sparkling water. the bigger the pool, the easy at the gas can spread well with your own. just blowing it and see if it can and you can get some air through it. and this is quite good. no, i don't need to too much force on my blow to get the answer. the johansson formation, which is intended to absorb the c o 2 lines below the troll field, a gas deposit that contains another 30 years supply of the fossil fuel, in between
11:16 pm
a several layers of dense shale rock base of an alternation. look at the bottom of coal bed here somewhere in there. because of the gas production from us all feel the pressure is falling in this more shallow means even if there should be a little bit of the casual c o 2. from this one cannot escape from the under pressure in the overlying sounds so far everything has been going well with the storage of c o 2 in norway at the slightly gas drilling platform, more than $1000000.00 tons of c o 2 have been pumped back underground. every year for 25 years, the northern lights project aims to stop with $1500000.00 tons per year. if you look at the sheer magnitude of the problem globally, there is a need for thousands of facilities. and we're talking hundreds of millions of tons
11:17 pm
per year that needs to be handled. carbon capture and storage chill c.c.'s. it's also been researched in germany. a 2017 experiment was a success. the c o 2 remained in the ground under kit seen in eastern germany. but it raised fears of earthquakes and escaping gases. since then the storage of c o 2 has been politically dead in germany. even the search is essentially for him, put it into it, seen in can you see where i was also deeply involved in a safety concern that i would have gladly built out of a storage facility at any time without any word or negate this. all of roger's been worried if i put it on the wrong plates in the wrong way with the wrong partners. it's clear that countries like germany that emit a lot of c o 2 also have to take responsibility for it. he says c.c.'s is indispensable. it's get upset, so you know,
11:18 pm
there are estimates that in europe we have enough storage space for 1000 years for a c o 2 emissions or woman. at the moment we have c.c.'s as a good alternative fuel for if someone has a better one in 30 years, all the better how to start holiday. but right now we have to improve the technology so that it's safe and is also controlled safely. transfused ins, top priority, when it comes to climate protection, is to return the bugs to their natural state and thus stop their c o 2 emissions. would be given their 2nd, it's region, they are stuck on the east and german coast. he's researching how i really whetted bulk and become the c o 2 store. again, in the long term, the teeth say bob was drained over the centuries. this allowed oxygen to penetrate the bog soil and break it down. that released a lot of carbon. it was reflooded 20 years ago for your wash jury in the period. it
11:19 pm
was without water. it was a system in decline. we've calculated that. we lost 2.7 meters of peat at this location over the last few decades. and now we're looking to see whether we can not only stop these processes, but also turn them around in order to get new peat formation of higher water levels to talk to the scale of the problem is vast. half of northern germany has been drained to grow potatoes or corn or to graze animals. a check ted then emits as much c o 2 in a single year. 29 tons as a car does in a typical lifespan of 200000 kilometers. in hankow soon in the northwest landscape, ecologist is investigating what happens when a drained cold is flooded. again, he discovered that at 1st it produces methane,
11:20 pm
another very dangerous greenhouse gas. this after a few years the missing emissions decrease and then the begins to store c o 2 over the long term just extrapolated that for all areas that are currently drained globally. and you can see very clearly that the faster we return water to the bar, the better it is for the climate. for the drained, make up 7 percent of arab will land in germany. is it even possible to turn back time? if we take climate protection seriously, we have no alternative to it. dusty when you understand that agriculture on vogue's in germany causes annual climate damage of
11:21 pm
$7400000000.00 euros, which corresponds exactly to the total added value of the whole of agriculture. then you have to ask yourself, are we doing here? borrowing, is it an activity that causes $789000.00 euros damage per hectare is allowed and even subsidized? because of course, these greenhouse gases that are me, cities must be compensated for somewhere else. somebody else has to pay for it. it won't be easy to restructure agriculture and convince farmers to turn huge areas of farm land into wet bulbs. again, if we follow the norwegians plan for dealing with seo to europe will soon have lots of facilities like they came in through to waste to energy count. he s c o 2 is
11:22 pm
filtered from the flue, gases. this could serve as a model for other industry sectors that have not yet been able to make their production carbon neutral. yanni cobia cuz initiated the c.c.s. project at the waste to energy plant in 2014. i'm proud that i believe that it's meaningful to work with this building because this could actually make a difference. and this is something we need to do in order to basically save, save this world. because once to prove that it's possible to remove c o 2 from industrial emissions, the waste to energy plant releases 400000 tons of c o 2. every year. the small pilot plant can only collect 1000 tons of it here. that shows that it can work all it comes to the capture rates. technology has proven to be extremely effective. you
11:23 pm
and you have managed to capture more than 95 percent of the c o 2 from the pilot plant. when it comes to the energy use, it's quite an idjit demanding i that usually makes capturing c o 2, very expensive, but that's not a problem. i'm here in the waste to energy plant. there's an abundance of waste heat here. the big challenge is to make capturing c o 2 economical it sharing the flue. gases is only 5 to 10 percent. it's important to find the right chemicals that combined and enrich the c o 2. they are then removed with heat and he used again because it's quite costly today because if we are at the very beginning of the developments, there are only
11:24 pm
a few plants today and none of them are actually on industrial sources. the biggest challenge is that today the economy is not favoring handling of c o 2. it is a more attractive business voice simply to the c o 2 high price. the c o $2.00 could make carbon capture and storage increasingly attractive, since around half of the waste in this waste to energy plant consists of biomass. c, o 2 is even in directly extracted from the and because when this biomass grows, it absorbs c o 2. if this is trapped during incineration and bunkered away, it reduces the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. we've got c o 2 negative, and we know that we need to develop c o 2 negative solutions in order to reach the paris agreement. so waste to energy,
11:25 pm
the waste energy business can be very important in the matter. so this is what the future of getting c o 2 out of the atmosphere could look like. bilston is in his favorite place, the calendar off medicaid's. here you can see how pete then scroll in their natural, what state they don't really see. 02, but instead absorb it. and yet they can still be used for agriculture by growing reads, a lot can be made out of these 3 grooves plastics, bio gas which shoes are reeds are an example of a plant that can be harvested sustainably without damaging the more sure. there are already many ideas about what can be cultivated in bugs in hand counts and in western germany. knowledge areas of moss are being cultivated for the 1st
11:26 pm
time on a regretted blog. after all, most is that the natural vegetation on people can they be grown and harvested like any other fields crop. and the search for the best most is for agricultural cultivation is underway on the edge of the trial area. i'm here, paga, and team grow muscles from all over the world here. they aim to find the ones that grow as well and just quickly as possible in this way. they also absorb c o 2 and turn the bugs into sinks with greenhouse gases. however, it will take more for moss' to become a profitable product. so are long gone. direct payments to support and subsidies for farmers are not yet established. it's almost i remain, my dear. but we can show here on the demonstration farm and this is actually feasible, was much as well as what we can harvest into a large scale implementation really depends on political will on further technological development off and on finding the supermarkets and most for want as
11:27 pm
a replacement for white pete, pete was once made from moss and horticulture needs. huge amounts of it so much that germany's trained and not enough. and most of the paint is imported from the baltic states in about 15 year is the german pizza will be completely exploited. then an alternative will have to be found, most is as a piece substitute would be a double benefit for the climate, no more emissions from peta extraction, and the most is buying c o 2 from the air borne methods of binding c o 2 must be researched without prejudice, time is running out when
11:28 pm
streets sparkle with color. when houses are down. and the artworks are beautiful and tasty. and then it's time for your home x. . this time it's street art, stylish, global masterpieces. the romantics
11:29 pm
here and more beer. what else is there today? i want to find out what munich's got to offer for turner. it's time to come here for education. how about heaps of art? history and culture. munich's really good sunfish. well man cheers. tricia. in 60 minutes, the t.w. give us your country, the will make you rich people, oil flow from viju with jobs. the oil will take good care of you. messages to the world. fever took hold on the west coast of going on in 2007. investors made
11:30 pm
big promises, but years later, reality looks very different from the features of drinking water shortage. client commitment to god the stream of black gold oil starts december 4th on d. w. a is the breathtaking landscape in oscar was considered so beautiful that it was by the chinese will see more.
