Projects Suggest Underground Carbon Storage May Help Limit Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Researchers Say

By Robert Cooke

AAAS – Much of the carbon dioxide produced by power plants and factories can be pumped underground into safe, long-term storage, at reasonable cost, according to new research presented at the AAAS Annual Meeting.

Based on early tests of large-scale “carbon-dioxide sequestration” technology, members of a symposium panel agreed that pumping the carbon-dioxide directly underground and hiding it beneath “tight” geological formations such as shales seems to offer a solution to a global problem.
