Carbon Capture and Storage

Carbon capture and storage is the process of capturing waste carbon dioxide (CO2)  from large point sources such as fossil fuel power plants, transporting it to a storage site and depositing it so that it will not enter the atmosphere. Carbon Capture is a potential means of mitigating the contribution of fossil fuel emissions to global warming and ocean acidification.

 

Below are examples of laws and regulations on carbon capture and storage as well as case studies on a number of jurisdictions carried out by the Global CCS Institute.  The Global CCS Institute has a wealth of materials on the topic.
