What Is Carbon Capture And Storage?

Green Living Tips

Carbon Capture and Storage/Sequestration (CCS) is one of a suite of so-called "clean coal" technologies touted to allow us to continue burning coal for electricity generation but with drastically reduced emissions

How Humanity can act on Moving Planet Day

A great bit of news for this 24 September “Moving Planet Day” of climate change action backed by 350.org, 300.org and others around the World: Germany’s upper house of parliament, the Bundesrat, has rejected a proposal to start storing the greenhouse gas (GHG) carbon dioxide (CO2) underground in a bid to reduce emissions (see “ Germany rejects carbon dioxide storage plans ”, The Local, 23 September 2011.

The good, the bad and the ugly: Carbon capture and storage


It’s believed that carbon capture and storage (CCS) from conventional power plants could reduce the amount of CO2 in the air by as much as 90 percent. However, it’s also believed that it could increase fuel needs of coal-fired CCS plants by 25-40 percent. Merit of CCS systems.

Quick Take: How we can afford carbon capture right now

Conservancy Talk

And the cost of carbon capture and storage (CCS) from stationary sources such as coal power plants has been estimated at anywhere between $90 and $150 per ton. Meanwhile, the cost of improving land use to absorb more carbon is often less than $20 per ton – potentially more than 80 percent cheaper than power plant CCS estimates.

The Hope of an Alternative Way to Use Coal

Carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) offers a compromise solution. CSS reduces emissions by capturing carbon dioxide for ultimate storage underground. Researchers at the University of Texas are studying ways to reduce costs by dissolving captured carbon dioxide in brine.

If we are to keep global warming below the 2 degrees Celsius cap recommended by scientists, emissions from CO2 and other greenhouse gases must drop by 40 to 70 percent by 2050 – and drop even further to near-zero by the end of the century.


Oil and Gas Company Climate Commitments Are Encouraging—But They Need to Do More

Shell’s ambitious “Sky” scenario outlines the potential for “net zero” CO2 emissions by 2070. to end flaring and are adopting practices such as green completions that rein in methane emissions. BP pledges to hold its own emissions constant at 2016 levels while its business grows.
