Carbon Capture and Sequestration Video. This new online video, made available by the Carbon Capture & Sequestration Project and the Department of Environmental Protection, includes experts discussing the role carbon capture and sequestration can play in achieving needed reductions in carbon dioxide emissions in order to mitigate global climate change.
Carbon capture and sequestration provides a means to dramatically reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere from industrial facilities or when electricity is generated by fossil fuel power plants. Although carbon dioxide is neither toxic nor inherently dangerous, the overabundance of atmospheric CO2 is believed to be a major contributor to global climate change. (Click here to watch video)
