Using CCS in the Energy Industry

As one of the most energy intensive industries in the world, the energy sector faces serious pressure to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. One of the crucial ways to achieve this is CCS (Carbon Capture and Sequestration) programmes.

CCS involves capturing CO2 produced during industrial activities and storing it deep underground. This means CO2 is captured right at the source, such as at the site of power stations, before it has a chance of being emitted into the atmosphere.

Key fact: CCS technology captures up to 90% of CO2 released by burning fossil fuels in industrial processes

There are three ways of capturing CO2: post-combustion, pre-combustion, and oxyfuel. It’s then compressed into a liquid state. Either pipelines, road tankers, or ships can be used for transporting the CO2 to where it will be pumped into underground rock formations.

By injecting the captured greenhouse gases into the ground, CCS not only reduces CO2 emissions, but also removes them from the atmosphere. For the energy industry, CCS has the added benefit of maintaining energy supply and increasing the resilience and competitiveness of energy companies.

Benefits

  • Removes carbon from the atmosphere

  • Reduces emissions at the source

  • Improves resilience of energy companies
