The article offers information on the advantages of using Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS) technology in several companies. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), CCS is the most promising technology for the rapid global emission reduction. IPCC states that global emission can be reduced by up to 55% by 2100 when using CCS. INSET: What to do with all that carbon?.
