CCS 101

Carbon capture and storage (CCS), also known as carbon capture and sequestration, helps manufacturers, industrial producers and generating facilities meet environmental requirements in a cost-effective, responsible manner. CCS captures carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions produced by these plants before they enter the atmosphere. The captured CO2 is liquified, transported and permanently stored deep underground beneath a thick layer of impermeable cap rock. The CO2 then naturally mineralizes and dissolves over time.


CCS is a safe and environmentally responsible solution for businesses facing growing emissions regulations. At the same time, it provides economic benefits to landowners and communities.
