Hamidreza Bakhtiary-Davijany and Tore Myhrvold, DNV Research & Innovation, Det Norske Veritas AS, Høvik, Norway

8.1 Introduction

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is an important component of low-carbon technologies for climate change mitigation. The Global CCS Institute suggests a definition for CCS as the long-term isolation of fossil fuel CO2 emissions from the atmosphere through capturing and storing the CO2 deep in the subsurface of the Earth. Carbon capture is the separation of CO2 from the other gases produced when fossil fuels are burnt for power generation and when CO2 is produced in other industrial processes. Once separated, the CO2
