Carbon Capture (Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES))
The Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES) carbon storage program provides an overview of Carbon captor, utilization, and storage (CCUS), including history, principles, status, and policy aspects.
- There are several methods of carbon capture: pre-combustion, post-combustion, and oxyfuel.
- Almost 30 commercial-scale carbon capture projects are operating around the world as of 2020.
- Captured carbon dioxide can be stored in oil and gas reservoirs, deep saline formations, coal beds, or basalt formations and shale basins.
Federal and state regulations exist to ensure proper storage site selection and injection.
