Carbon Capture Strategies
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) and carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) technologies capture CO2 emissions from point sources such as power plants and industrial processes, to prevent the release into the atmosphere.
The difference between CCS and CCU is in the final destination of the captured CO2.
- CCS: captured CO2 is transferred to a suitable site for long-term storage
- CCU: captured CO2 is converted into commercial products.
