What Is Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCS/CCUS)?

The Carbon Capture Industry includes a variety of unique processes and technologies that aid in capturing, repurposing, or safely storing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions found within industrial processes like power plants. It is often abbreviated as CCS (Carbon Capture and Storage) or CCUS (Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage/Sequestration).

Utilization or Usage 


Sequestration or Storage 



CO2 can be captured directly from large emission sources like power plants or ethanol plants. Carbon is removed using post-combustion, pre-combustion, or oxyfuel combustion techniques. Once the CO2 is removed, it will require transport to appropriate CO2 storage locations or different industrial plants to be utilized in other processes. 


Captured CO2 can be used to manufacture fuels and building materials, and aid in the production of other products like concrete or plastics.  


Carbon sequestration is the process of safely storing CO2 after it has been captured. Used carbon can be transported to designated underground collection areas for permanent storage or other industrial facilities until it is ready to be used.

Post-Combustion Carbon Capture

Post-combustion carbon capture is commonly used in small and medium-scale industrial applications. It offers the unique cost-saving advantage of being retrofittable to existing carbon-producing systems. Post-combustion CO2 capture involves capturing carbon from the point source in the flue gas after combustion.
