Definitions

Carbon capture and storage refers to a range of technologies used to capture, transport, and store CO2, that together can be used to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuel power generation and other industrial sources. Credible analyses among clean energy technology projects show that carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) may need to play a substantial role in achieving the necessary emissions reductions (Source: http://africanclimate.net/en/node/8506; http://cdm.unfccc.int/about/ccs/index.html)
