© THINKSTOCK - XUANHUONGHO - Industrial exhaust is made up of many gases including CO2, which has to be isolated before the capture phase.
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies are emerging as one of the most closely studied areas in the battle against climate change, thanks to their potential for reducing emissions. However, the road is paved with many technical and financial obstacles. In addition to being stored, CO2 can also be used as a raw material to produce fuels, plastics and chemical products. Together, these techniques are often referred to as carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS).
