Capturing and storing carbon could be the way to keep our planet cool
So what is Carbon Capture Storage?
When fossil fuels are burned, harmful carbon dioxide emissions are created. Carbon Capture Storage is a process where these emissions are instead kept and transported via pipeline elsewhere. One place these emissions could be stored is in empty oil fields in the North Sea. There are currently two projects – one at Grangemouth and another at St Fergus in Aberdeenshire – under development by energy firms to do this.
