Is underground carbon pumping actually working?



  1. 0 Votes

    Underground carbon pumping is commonly referred to as carbon capture and storage (CCS). It is a method of taking the carbon emissions created as a by product of energy production (mainly coal fired plants) and injecting it into soil. Currently carbon sequestration (as it is also known) is not being implemented commercially.

     It is intended to prevent the CO2 produced by energy production from reaching the atmosphere and contributing to global warming. However, drawbacks of CCS include the expense of building plants which include the technology, it is unlikely to be available on a large scale for decades, it is an inefficient way to produce energy since 10-40% of the plant production would to to powering the CCS, and there is no certainty that the sequestration itself will be safe and effective.
