Carbon Sequestration Primer


Carbon sequestration is a catch-all term for the capture of harmful carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, principally from coal-fired power and industrial plants, and subsequent transport for eventual storage or use in industrial or energy applications.

Carbon sequestration poses many challenges due to its capital intensity, impact on power prices, and transportation and storage requirements.

The processes and systems involved in carbon capture today are at different levels of technological maturity. Figure 1 provides an overview of the components and technologies involved in carbon sequestration systems.
