• CCUS technologies involve capturing CO2 emissions from industrial processes, utilizing it in various ways, and storing it permanently underground.
• CCUS provides a cost-effective way to reduce GHG emissions from industrial processes, thereby contributing to the fight against climate change.
• CCUS projects under development are increasingly geographically diverse, with more than 30 countries now involved, and the proliferation of decarbonization targets for the global economy by 2050 is prompting the expansion of CO2 capture applications.
Overview of CCUS
Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS) technologies have been gaining increasing traction in recent years as an effective way to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and mitigate climate change. These technologies involve capturing CO2 emissions from industrial processes, utilizing it in various ways, and storing it permanently underground, thereby reducing the amount of CO2 that is released into the atmosphere.
The CCUS process can be divided into three primary stages: capture, utilization, and storage. The first stage involves the capture of CO2 emissions from industrial sources such as power plants, cement plants, and refineries. Various methods are used to capture CO2 emissions, including post-combustion capture, pre-combustion capture, and oxyfuel combustion.
