carbon capture and storage

(1) A technology which attempts to prevent the release of large quantities of CO2 from fossil fuels consumed by power plants when producing electricity. The CO2 would be stored in deep geological formations, ocean trenches or as mineral carbonates.
(2) An older definition referring to the planting of trees to offset the buildup of CO2 secondary to burning of fossil fuels.
