Carbon Capture

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, “carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS), also referred to as carbon capture, utilization and sequestration, is a process that captures carbon dioxide emissions from sources like coal-fired power plants and either reuses or stores it so it will not enter the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide storage in geologic formations includes oil and gas reservoirs, unmineable coal seams and deep saline reservoirs—structures that have stored crude oil, natural gas, brine and carbon dioxide over millions of years.”
