Targeting the main culprits — combustion of fossil fuels for power generation or cement production — CCS projects over the last 20 years have primarily focused on capturing CO2 from fluegas, and then injecting the pressurized CO2 underground or into wells for enhanced oil recovery (EOR).More recently, another branch of R&D has begun to blossom
