Coal and gas carbon capture and storage technologies (CCS) reduce CO2 emissions from coal and natural gas production, but do not result in a net reduction of CO2 from the atmosphere. CCS applied to coal and gas can only prevent emissions from going into the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide removal (CDR) approaches (like afforestation and direct air capture), on the other hand, have the ability to draw down or remove carbon dioxide already released into the atmosphere.
Why aren’t coal and natural gas carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies included under “Technological Carbon Removal"? Print
