... Contact Info Howard Herzog Research Group Directions Hotels CC ST welcome page About the MIT CC ST Program The Carbon Capture and Sequestration Technologies Program at MIT conducts research into technologies to capture utilize and store CO2 from large stationary sources Initiated in 1989 our program is internationally recognized as a leader in this field A major component of the program is the Carbon Sequestration Initiative an industrial consortium launched in July 2000 Our research examines carbon sequestration from multiple perspectives including technical economic and political Current research interests include technology assessments economic modeling analysis of regulatory and political aspects and development of a Carbon Management Geographic Information System GIS To complement our research we have a strong commitment to stakeholder outreach and education As such we hold an annual Carbon Sequestration Forum each fall Other current outreach activities include participation in the IPCC Special Report on Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage and the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum Our CCS Project Database Overview page Map of CCS Projects Power Plant CCS Projects Non Power Plant CCS Projects Commercial EOR Projects Pilot Projects Announced Projects Cancelled and Inactive Projects Recent Updates and News Regional CCS Financing Summaries Technology Overview Carbon sequestration is a way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions It complements two other major approaches for greenhouse gas reduction namely improving energy efficiency and increasing use of non carbon energy sources Interest has been increasing in the carbon sequestration option because it is very compatible with the large energy production and delivery infrastructure now in place All three approaches will need to make significant contributions in order to meet the objective of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change that is the stabilization of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with...
