Schulich prof hopes to help foster sustainable future through carbon capture

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a process that reduces climate change by capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions produced from burning fossil fuels in power generation and industrial processes. The captured CO2 is then transported via pipelines, ships or trucks and stored in geological formations deep underground. The CCS process works with the oil and gas sector to allow for more-sustainable production.
