Carbon capture and storage or use
Keeping 1.5°C Alive: Closing the Gap in the 2020s, version 1.0, published by the Energy Transitions Commission in September 2021, states: ‘Carbon capture and storage or use (CCS/U): We use the term ‘carbon capture’ to refer to the process of capturing CO2 on the back of energy and industrial processes. Unless specified otherwise, we do not include direct air carbon capture (DACC) when using this term. The term ‘carbon capture and storage’ (CCS) refers to the combination of carbon capture with underground carbon storage; while ‘carbon capture and use’ (CCU) refers to the use of carbon in carbon-based products in which CO2 is sequestered over the long term (e.g., in concrete, aggregates, carbon fibre). Carbon-based products that only delay emissions in the short term (e.g., synfuels) are excluded when using this terminology.'
