The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued a final rule to create a consistent national framework ensuring the safe and effective deployment of carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technologies.
CCS technologies allow carbon dioxide to be captured at stationary sources – like coal-fired power plants and large industrial operations – and injected underground for long-term storage in a process called geologic sequestration.
