Carbon Capture Projects Could Be Endangered By Fracking New Scientist reports on the impact that fracking could have on carbon capture projects: Princeton University researchers ay that 80% of the US's potential underground storage of CO2 that could be used in the carbon capture and storage projects overlaps with shale gas fields. Meaning, fracking could potentially crack the rock above these storage areas, either eliminating their usefulness, or allowing stored CO2 to escape.
