DTE Vantage is helping partners across North America to reduce their carbon emissions



DTE Vantage is helping partners across North America reduce or control their carbon emissions, assisting them in meeting their environmental commitments and creating a cleaner future for customers and communities.

Carbon capture and sequestration is proven and delivers results at dozens of sites worldwide. The process captures CO₂ from industrial emitters and transports it to sequestration sites where it is injected deep underground. The CO₂ is safely and permanently sequestered in geological formations, preventing it from being released into the atmosphere where it would otherwise contribute to climate change.
