There are different approaches to combating climate change. In addition to reducing CO2 emissions, it is also about capturing and storing CO2, which is known as “Carbon Capture and Storage” (CCS).
CCS technologies aim to capture CO2 directly from industrial processes, for example, or to remove it from the atmosphere and store it. Professor Roland Dittmeyer from the Institute of Microprocess Engineering at KIT explains where CCS could be usefully used BR Podcast IQ – Science and Research.

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is a technology designed to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) released into the atmosphere when fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas are burned. Here is a simple explanation for 10th grade students:

Capture: This step involves capturing or capturing the CO2 produced by burning fossil fuels before it is released into the atmosphere. There are various methods to capture CO2, including chemical or physical methods.
Transport: Once the CO2 has been captured, it must be safely transported from sources, such as power plants or industrial facilities, to storage sites. This often happens through pipelines or in special tanks.
Storage: The CO2 is then safely stored in underground storage facilities, such as empty natural gas or oil deposits or deep rock layers. It remains trapped there for a long time without polluting the atmosphere.
The goal of CCS is to reduce the amount of CO2 released into the atmosphere and contributing to climate change by storing it safely. It is an important technology in the fight against climate change as it allows the continued use of fossil fuels while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
