The Zero Emission Research and Technology Center (ZERT) is a partnership of U.S. Department of Energy national laboratories and universities that is conducting collaborative research to enhance the current understanding of the basic science of geologic carbon dioxide (CO2) storage. Its goal is to prevent the release of CO2 into the atmosphere, thereby mitigating greenhouse gases derived from fossil fuel use, and to develop technologies that can ensure safe, reliable, and long-term storage of CO2 underground.
