Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS)

There are two forms of carbon capture:

  • Biological carbon capture and storage: when the natural environment – such as forests and oceans – sequesters CO2 from the atmosphere.
  • Artificial / Geological carbon capture and storage: when CO2 as an emission is extracted from human-made processes and is stored in vast underground facilities.
