While it is technically feasible to pull CO2 from ambient air — as opposed to capturing and sequestering emissions CO2 Capture and Storage Gains a Growing Foothold The drive to extract and store CO2 from coal-fired power plants is gaining momentum. But two questions loom: Will carbon capture and storage be affordable? And will it be safe? READ THE e360 REPORT directly from power plants — the costs will remain too high to make it a viable option for decades to come, researchers say.
