carbon capture & storage


Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is a combination of a number of existing technologies, with the potential to play a major role in the management and reduction of global carbon dioxide (CO2) levels. The CCS process allows for CO2 emissions released during energy production to be captured and stored underground.
