carbon capture in the midwest

Carbon capture and storage refers to a suite of technologies that reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) pollution from industrial facilities and power plants. Carbon capture and storage captures CO2 and other pollutants directly from a facility before they are emitted. The CO2 is then compressed and transported to where it is permanently and securely stored in deep geologic formations. Understanding the process, economics, benefits, and risks is paramount to informed decision-making about carbon capture and storage technologies in Midwestern U.S. states.
