“What is CCS?
CCS involves the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from industrial processes, such as steel and cement production, or from the burning of fossil fuels in power generation. This carbon is then transported from where it was produced, via ship or in a pipeline, and stored deep underground in geological formations.
How does CCS actually work?
There are three steps to the CCS process:
Capture: the CO2 is separated from other gases produced in industrial processes, such as those at coal and natural-gas-fired power generation plants or steel or cement factories.
Transport: the CO2 is then compressed and transported via pipelines, road transport or ships to a site for storage.
Storage: finally, the CO2 is injected into rock formations deep underground for permanent storage.”
This may sound like the type of operation that would result in more emissions, however this article
asserts the following:
“Even when factoring in the CO2 emissions that may occur both during transport and storage in the subsoil, carbon capture clearly results in net climate benefits,” says Valentina Bisinella.
Would you be any more open to buying from a Huge, Multinational Company that employed carbon capture technology used in their operations?
