Carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) is a critical part of the industrial technology portfolio. In the Clean Technology Scenario (CTS), which sets out an energy system pathway consistent with the Paris Agreement, more than 28 GtCO2 is captured from industrial facilities in the period to 2060. CCUS delivers 38% of the emissions reductions needed in the chemical subsector and 15% in both cement and iron and steel.
ATProX has developed XCO technology to separate the CO2 from any stream and purify the CO2 to be able to recover and reuse it.
CCUS is one of the most cost-effective solutions available to reduce emissions from some industrial and fuel transformation processes – especially those that inherently produce a relatively pure stream of CO2, such as natural gas and coal-to-liquids processing, hydrogen production from fossil fuels and ammonia production.
