  • Abstract:
    Carbon capture and sequestration (or storage)—known as CCS—has attracted interest as a

    measure for mitigating global climate change because large amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2)

    emitted from fossil fuel use in the United States are potentially available to be captured and stored underground or prevented from reaching the atmosphere. Large, industrial sources of CO2, such as electricity-generating plants, are likely initial candidates for CCS because they are predominantly stationary, single-point sources. Electricity generation contributes over 40% of U.S. CO2 emissions from fossil fuels. Contains a section on Transportation on Page 9.
