CO2 is captured directly from stack emissions at industrial sites where it is separated from other flue gas components.
Once it has been compressed or liquefied, the CO2 is transported by pipeline or ship to the place of storage.
The CO2 is injected into impermeable rock formations more than 1,000 meters below the surface for permanent storage. These formations include salt aquifers and depleted oil and gas reservoirs.
