Climate Now Video: Carbon Capture and Storage, Part I
What if we could remove the carbon we have emitted into the atmosphere? Can we capture our CO2 emissions before they are even released? Turns out we can, and we have been doing it for 50 years.
The technology is called carbon capture and storage, or CCS. CCS technology will need to play a substantial role in net emissions reduction, but to do so it will have to scale up to billions of tons of capture annually.
In Part I of our two-part Carbon Capture and Storage series, our host Dr. Ozak Esu and two internationally-recognized CCS experts, Dr. Julio Friedmann and Dr. Howard Herzog, explain the science behind carbon capture, how much it costs, and who is leading the industry.
