The Commercial Viability of Carbon Capture and Storage to Mitigate Carbon Dioxide Emissions

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) involves securing carbon dioxide (CO2) at its emission source, storing, and isolating it, thus preventing it from entering the atmosphere and negating its global warming effects. CCS is not new – there are several different CCS technologies, and the CO2 can be stored underground or underwater. One of the more recent breakthroughs is using reactive basalt, a volcanic rock found in abundance, to turn the liquefied CO2 into stable carbonate.
