The article offers information on the carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology as an effective tool for reducing global greenhouse gas emissions. It informs that CCS was included in the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) carbon offsetting scheme of the United Nations (UN) at the climate change conference in December 2011 and mentions that around 74 CCS projects are presently operating across the world.
