"Engineered Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) – the Why? How? and When?" presented by Dorthe Wildenschild. The US has recently made a substantial commitment to solving the climate crisis via the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021. A key component of that effort is carbon capture and storage (CCS), a scalable and technologically viable approach to sequester carbon dioxide (CO2) in the subsurface, and thus reduce the build-up of CO2 in the atmosphere. Simultaneously, the rapid development of direct air capture (DAC) technology is driving further interest in CCS for long-term storage of CO2 captured via these new technologies.
