Norway’s future carbon dioxide ‘cemetery’ takes shape
Recently Norway is building the world’s first open-access Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) infrastructure on its North Sea coast.
This infrastructure will facilitate each emitter of CO2 capture to supply that captured CO2 to this infrastructure for safe management, transportation and storage.
CCS is one way to reduce carbon emissions. This could prove important to help combat global warming. It is a three-step process.
It includes –
- Capturing CO produced by power generation or industrial activities;
- Transport and
- Store it deep inside the ground.
Apart from this, there is also another related concept called ‘Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage’ (CCUS). In this method, instead of storing carbon, it can be reused in industrial processes.
