Barriers to Carbon Capture and Storage

Our knowledge of carbon capture and storage (CCS) and experience dealing with it have greatly increased over the past decade, but CCS is still far from living up to its potential in stabilizing atmospheric carbon dioxide levels and mitigating climate change impacts. To deploy CCS on a larger scale, the following economic, social, and legal barriers

Carbon Capture and Storage Projects Awarded USD 1 Billion

The U.S. Department of Energy announced June 10th that it had awarded grants to demonstrate large-scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) from three industrial sources. The projects seek to test large-scale industrial carbon capture and storage, an important step in moving CCS technology toward eventual commercial deployment. The selected projects include large-scale applications that capture carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from industrial sources and either store it in a deep saline formation or use it for enhanced oil recovery.
