Carbon Capture and Storage in Louisiana

April 9, 2024 Category: Implementation, Technology Work Area: Carbon Capture

 Carbon capture and storage (CCS) refers to a suite of technologies that reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) pollution from power plants and industrial facilities. CCS captures CO2 directly from a facility before it is emitted, compresses CO2 for transport, and permanently stores that CO2 in deep geologic formations for thousands of years. Understanding the process, economics, benefits, and risks is paramount to informed decision making about CCS technology deployment in Louisiana.
