Carbon capture, use & storage

Posted on Friday, January 27th, 2017 by

Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS) is an integrated suite of technologies that can capture up to 90% of the CO2 emissions produced from the use of fossil fuels in electricity generation and industrial processes, preventing the CO2 from entering the atmosphere. Capture Capture technologies allow the separation of CO2 from gases produced in electricity […]
