Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is proposed as essential in efforts to limit the effects of climate change. CCS is now recognised as “essential, not optional” on the pathway to recover already emitted CO2 and achieve net-negative industrial economies. All aspects of CCS have been established theoretically, experimentally and by pilot trials. The obstacle to deployment is political and economic understanding.
