Our best chance to act was a generation ago. Our second best chance is now.
CARBON CAPTURE AND STORAGE (CCS)
Storegga uses proven geological stores many kilometres below the earth’s surface, to safely and permanently lock away harmful CO2 which has been captured from industrial emissions processes or drawn out of the atmosphere.
CCS has been proven in industrial-scale projects globally, with the world’s first industrial CCS project in continuous operation since 1996. Now, CCS projects are being developed in industrial regions across the globe because it is the most effective way to prevent or remove the CO2 emissions from our atmosphere in volumes significant enough to slow the pace of climate change. These emissions have been generated from modern society through things like power generation and industrial processes like manufacturing.
CO2 storage in deep geological formations is also known as ‘geo-sequestration’. It has a big part to play in a sustainable future.

Carbon Capture and Storage has three phases
Storegga’s CEO, Dr Nick Cooper, is the CCUS Taskforce Champion for the Sustainable Markets Initiative (SMI), launched by the former Prince of Wales in 2020 under the mandate of the Terra Carta.
Its aim is to build a coordinated global effort to enable the private sector to accelerate the transition to a sustainable future.
