What is CCUS?

Power supply and carbon-intensive industries (cement, steel, limestone, petrochemical and chemical plants and waste incinerator) account for a large share of CO2 emissions. Carbon, capture utilisation and storage (CCUS) is one of the only technology solutions that can significantly reduce emissions from these key industrial processes (all of which will remain vital building blocks of modern society) as well as in coal and gas power generation and deliver the deep emissions reductions needed across.

The most mature technology, post combustion CO2 capture by amine scrubbing, does not offer sufficient performances nowadays. Several technologies at different levels of maturity and performances can be envisaged for capturing the CO2 from (e.g. oxy-fuel combustion, chilled ammonia technology, adsorptive processes, calcium looping, etc.).

Almost all climate plans are integrating CCUS in the equation, however research and innovation is still highly needed in order to make such plans viable. MOF4AIR has the ambition to make CCUS a reality for a more sustainable future.
