Carbon capture utilisation and storage
The Energy White Paper, Powering our Net Zero Future (CP 337), published in December 2020 by HM Government, defines carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCUS) as: ‘The process of capturing carbon dioxide from industrial processes, power generation, certain hydrogen production methods and greenhouse gas removal technologies such as bioenergy with carbon capture and storage and direct air capture. The captured carbon dioxide is then either used, for example in chemical processes, or stored permanently in disused oil and gas fields or naturally occurring geological storage sites.’
Net Zero by 2050, A Roadmap for the Global Energy Sector, published by the International Energy Agency in May 2021, defines carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) as: ‘The process of capturing CO2 emissions from fuel combustion, industrial processes or directly from the atmosphere. Captured CO2 emissions can be stored in underground geological formations, onshore or offshore or used as an input or feedstock to create products.’
