HERMISTON — Scientists and energy executives are pursuing capturing carbon emissions produced in Oregon and storing them underground, a novel process that could someday reduce the effects of climate change. 

The Hermiston-based project would involve capturing carbon dioxide emitted by the town’s natural gas facility and storing it in rock thousands of feet below the Earth’s surface. Putting carbon dioxide below-ground instead of releasing it into the air would help bring Oregon and Washington closer to their carbon reduction goals to fight climate change, project leaders said.
