Deployed at a large scale, carbon capture and storage, or CCS, could significantly cut down greenhouse gas emissions. The International Energy Agency (IEA) says climate change scenarios, including the one outlined in the Paris agreement, can’t be met without applying CCS to power generation and other industries.
At ExxonMobil, the need for CCS is well understood. Over the past 40 years, the company has cumulatively captured the most CO2 of any company. And its work continues today as it develops more efficient ways to scale up this crucial technology.
But before considering the impact of CCS at a global scale, it’s important to understand how it works. Take a look and find out for yourself.
