CO2

Carbon Storage

Carbon Storage is the isolation of gases responsible of the greenhouse effect from the atmosphere.

The goal is to reverse the atmosphere pollution by injecting captured Dioxyde (CO2) underground in reservoirs for long-term storage or to be re-used in a close future.

Once injected underground, the Dioxyde (CO2) can either:

Deteriorate over a long period of time

Participate to Enhanced Oil Recovery Operations (EOR)

Be later transformed in plastics, fuel, concrete

Carbon Capture

Carbon Capture concept is to seize gases responsible of the greenhouse effect, preventing their increasing presence in our atmosphere.

From all the gases responsible of the global warming, Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is of course the main culprit, the reason behind the name of Carbon Capture.

Carbon Capture can occur in two situations, directly from the air, or from industrial processes. It is in this second case Carbon Capture is the most efficient by reducing up to 90% of CO2 emissions from a plant.
