CCS is a non-biological means of mitigating our impact on the earth from carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. By preventing this greenhouse gas from entering the atmosphere, the climate impact of the power plant or industrial process in question is greatly reduced.

CCS is done by capturing emissions from stationary sources, liquefying it, and sending it into underground storage via pipeline for long periods of time. Early methods of mitigation included carbon sequestration where trees were used as carbon storage. Carbon capture and long-term storage is a relatively new science that still has many unanswered questions.

Equipment used in carbon capture must handle fluids with lean and rich solvents as well as water, across a range of temperatures. A range of solvents may be used, such as amines, ammonia, ethers or potassium carbonate.
