ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Quest project launched by petroleum company Shell Canada, which aims to sequester the underground greenhouse gas. It states that the initiative will convert hydrocarbon-rich soils into a fuel stock as primary source of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in Canada. Other topics include chlorofluorocarbon mitigation, carbon capture sequestration (CCS), and climate change.
