Carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS)

Problem and its background

  CO2 capture and storage (CCS) involves capturing large quantities of carbon dioxide (CO2) from thermal power plants or other industrial facilities and storing it underground for a long-term period of time. CCS is the technology to reduce the amount of CO2 emitted into the atmosphere, and it is gaining attention as a prominent measure to mitigate climate change.

  While each underlying technology behind CO2 capture, transport, and injection has long been used in other industries, CCS – which integrates these technologies in an effort to combat climate change – is recognized as a new technology and has not yet demonstrated enough. In addition to R&D in individual elements of the technology, CCS demonstration projects that integrate all processes from CO2 capture to storage are also planned and implemented at various locations. At the same time, a social environment for CCS implementation, including a regulatory framework, public acceptance and economic efficiency, is being developed all over the world.
