Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a set of technologies that can tackle large volumes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions at source and contribute significantly to climate action.

This proven technology can be used in different sectors – including power and heat generation, heavy industry, bioenergy, waste-to-energy and hydrogen production – and could deliver “negative emissions”, whereby the amount of CO2 already in the atmosphere is reduced.

A CCS industry can deliver big emission reductions for process industries, such as steel, cement, chemicals and refineries, and a just transition to a net zero carbon economy for fossil-fuel based communities.

So what exactly is CCS and how does it work? Click on the links below.
