Definition of 1C Carbon Dioxide Transport and Storage Source Category
Carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage (CCS) involves the capture of CO2 from anthropogenic sources, its transport to a storage location and its long-term isolation from the atmosphere. Emissions associated with CO2 transport, injection and storage are covered under category 1C. Emissions (and reductions) associated with CO2 capture should be reported under the IPCC Sector in which capture takes place (e.g. Fuel Combustion or Industrial Activities).
