In spite of recent issues surrounding climate change data and its handling, there is little doubt that our massive geo-engineering experiment of increasing greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere will have undesirable consequences for the environment and for human health. To reduce the rate of change, it will be essential to deploy all emissions reduction techniques. One of the most effective ways of reducing emissions in the short to medium term (i.e., over the next 5–10 decades) will be to utilize carbon capture and storage, with particular reference to storage deep in the subsurface. Indeed, based on IEA forecasts, the world will need to be storing some 10 billion tons per year of CO2 by 2050. It is important that this process begins immediately and that we fully understand the implications of CCS (Carbon Capture and Storage) from a technical, environmental, economic and social perspective. The purpose of this special edition is to help provide some clarity to the debate around CCS and its global implications.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
