Low-emission technology series: introduction to carbon capture and storage

This document is designed to introduce teachers and students to carbon capture and storage (CCS), one of a number of low-emission energy technologies. These materials are part of CSIRO’s CarbonKids, a program now in over 230 schools around Australia that helps school communities understand one of the most challenging issues facing the world today – climate change – and the issues around it, including energy technologies, adaption and mitigation. CarbonKids combines the latest science with inquiry-based education.
