Carbon Capture and Storage Jobs
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is an approach to mitigating the contribution of fossil fuel emissions to climate change, based on capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from large point sources such as fossil fuel power plants.
It can also be used to describe the scrubbing of CO2 from ambient air as a geoengineering technique. The carbon dioxide can then be permanently stored away from the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide capture and storage can also be used to describe biological techniques which use trees, plankton, etc. to capture CO2 from the air. However, it is more conventional to use the term carbon capture and storage to describe non-biological processes.
Although CO2 has been injected into geological formations for various purposes, the long term storage of CO2 is still a relatively untried concept.
