DOE projects saved 10 million metric tons of CO2

The Department of Energy (DOE) has announced the safe capture of 10 million metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) from projects supported by the department through carbon capture and storage (CCS). According to DOE, the number is equivalent to removing more than 2 million vehicles from the roads in the United States for a year.

"This milestone builds on the Obama administration's goals of providing clean energy, supporting American jobs, and reducing emissions of carbon pollution," DOE said in a statement.
