1:38 pm

1:39 pm
of dollars in its technology to lower it's greenhouse impact including carbon capture. how does that work? first, co2 is separated from other gasses as they're produced at large facilities like power plants and steel meals. it's been compressed and transported to a suitable site for geological storage. finally the co2 is injected into deep underground rock formations beneath the surface. we report now from norway's carbon capture testing facility. >> reporter: it rises out of the ground like a city of steel. this is the largest industrial site in norway. and it's biggest emitter of carbon dioxide which can contribute to global warming. nestled on the site among a warren of pipes and chimneys, this test facility they're
1:40 pm
trying to work out how to best to turn the co2 tide. exhaust gasses from the power station and oil and gas refinery travel along two different pipes. then different techniques are used to strip away the co2. the gas here is released back into the atmosphere. but at a fully working plant it will be stored underground. >> the benefits that we can take large amounts of production and store it in a safe manner, and we can take it out from the climate system. >> carbon capture is costly. but the international energy agency believes they can reduce global carbon emissions by 14%. essentially this testing facility is an industrial-sized laboratory. in reality several thousand fully operational carbon capture
1:41 pm
plants will be needed to tackle the co2 problem. >> some environmental campaigners believe too much weight is being placed on the potential of carbon capture. because it is still allows us to rely on fossil fuels. but sorters say it could be part of the solution. >> what we see is that the demand for energy is increasing so rapidly so it's impossible for the moment to supply all that energy with renewables. we need to bridge into the renewable future. that's why we need carbon capture for the next 30, 40 years. >> reporter: norway's fortunes are largely rooted in its huge oil and gas reserves. the countryside close by are likely to escape the worst effects of any climate change. what happens at this huge site could end up being both part of the problem and the solution. emma hayward, al jazeera.
