Carbon Capture and Storage Technologies: Current Advancements and Future Potential

Abstract: With the growth of the global economy and the expansion of industrial activities, greenhouse gas emissions have become one of the main causes of global warming and climate change. Carbon dioxide is one of the most common greenhouse gases, and the increase in its emissions leads to irreversible impacts such as global warming and sea level rise. Therefore, reducing carbon dioxide emissions is an urgent task in addressing climate change. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology is a key technology aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and achieving carbon neutrality. This technology captures carbon dioxide generated during industrial processes and stores it in underground storage to prevent its release into the atmosphere. This article will cover four parts: introduction to CCS technology, research methods, research results, and discussion of results. This article mainly introduces the specific content and challenges of CCS technology, and proposes solutions based on one’s own understanding. With the development of society and technological progress, CCS technology will continue to improve and progress, and its influence will also increase.

Keywords: Global warming; greenhouse gases; carbon capture and storage; carbon neutrality.
