Carbon capture and storage

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) refers to several technologies and techniques which allow companies to ‘catch’ carbon dioxide gas which would otherwise be emitted into the atmosphere by industrial facilities and power plants.

In 2020, the Global CCS Institute identified 59 CCS facilities worldwide with a total capture capacity of 127 million tonnes p.a. (compare 2016 emissions due to human activity of 35 thousand million tons).
