How is the carbon dioxide collected?

Capture facilities use a product called amine to capture the CO2 from the process stream. The CO2 is then separated from the amine solution with heat, then dehydrated and compressed. The compression reduces its volume by about 400 times turning it into a very dense fluid. The “liquid” CO2 is then transported by an underground pipeline to injection wells for underground storage.
