Carbon capture and storage
The practice of capturing CO2 emitted from industries (especially power plants) and sequester in geological formations like depleted oil & gas fields, coal bed methane and saline aquifers is known as carbon capture and storage. There are different methods of capturing carbon dioxide. They are pre-combustion, post-combustion and oxy fuel method. The captured CO2 is compressed to liquid form and transported through pipelines and tankers to the sequestration site. The captured CO2 can also be used in the manufacturing of products like cement, gasoline, plastics, methanol and other chemicals.
