ABSTRACT
This paper describes an overview of particular solutions and approaches to dealing with the issue of carbon dioxide storage options in the Slovak Republic. This paper deals with the options of capture and subsequent storage of carbon dioxide in underground geological formations. The Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technology, which seems to be very promising in this context, is one of such technologies. Smaller or larger CCSprojects are carried out in different countries around the world. This contribution emphasizes the overview of solutions and approaches to the issue of dealing with CO2 and options of its storage in Slovakia. Concept of CO2 storage in deep geological formations has its supporters , but also opponents. Global climate changes will likely be a very important factor that could significantly change the life conditions on the Earth.
