Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) involves removing CO2 from the exhaust of power plants and industrial processes, transporting it via pipelines or ships, and then pumping it more than a kilometre underground into stable geological formations where it is stored permanently like the oil and natural gas accumulations of the North Sea. CCS is the only known way to decarbonise industries such as steel, cement and fertiliser production.
