It’s been said that the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is steadily increasing. Being a greenhouse gas, this could spell a lot of trouble for the planet as it could contribute to more global warming. Human activities like burning fossil fuel, deforestation in the name of development, and harmful practices that see the release of CO2 have significantly impacted the path our future is headed to. With this mind, there is a practice which involves capturing carbon dioxide and storing it for various purposes. The concept isn’t new with scientists having already injected CO2 into geological formations, in essence, putting it back where it came from. What is new, however, is storing it long term.
