UK Industry Group to Promote Carbon Storage Plans

A new group called the “Carbon Capture and Storage Association” aims to put new technology to use in the UK that will help the country meet emissions goals.
Led mostly by major oil and energy companies, the principal plan is to pump CO2 into old North Sea oil fields that will keep is out of the atmosphere. It also preserved oil field jobs as extraction is replaced by sequestration.
