What & How of CCS

What is CO2 Capture & Storage (CCS)?

Weyburn-Midale 3D Geological Model

Carbon dioxide capture and storage is a process for reducing GHG emissions into the atmosphere by first extracting CO2 from gas streams typically emitted during electricity production, fuel processing and other industrial process. Once captured and compressed, the CO2 is transported by pipeline or tanker to a storage site, often to be injected into an underground storage site (or geological formation), where it will be safely stored for the long-term.

The figure to the right shows a detailed illustration of a 3D Geological Model.
