Milestones for technology improvements 33 Short-term options would reduce CO2 emissions but not eliminate them. In the presence of carbon from fossil fuels or biomass, the carbo-thermal reduction of metals could take place at lower temperatures, but the output, instead of pure hydrogen, would be a syngas mixture of H2 and carbon monoxide (CO). Similarly, solar-assisted steam reforming of natural gas, and steam gasification of coal or solid biomass, can yield syngas.

Technology advances are under development that will enable CSP to boost electricity production and reduce costs, notably through higher temperatures that bring greater efficiency.
