CCUS technology is critical to industrial decarbonization
Important parts of the global economy cannot decarbonize without CCUS
CCUS may be the only way we can address the nearly 25% of industrial emissions that cannot be avoided by simply moving to alternative fuels because these emissions come from the industrial process activity.
To meet the Paris Climate goals, CCUS needs to grow at an exponential rate
In 2020 there were only 26 active CCUS projects. According to the IEA’s Sustainable Development Scenario, CCUS capacity will have to increase from roughly 40 million tons (Mt CO2) today to a capacity of 7,600 Mt CO2 by 2050 to meet our goals.
There is no one-size-fits-all CCUS technology solution
Despite its long history and relative maturity, the application of CCUS still involves uncertainties associated with emerging technologies. We will need a mix of technologies to meet industry needs and economics over the next decade.
We are investing today in the sustainable energy technology of tomorrow
Massive industrial carbon capture and storage hub with Borg CO2 in the Viken region of Norway
Industrial facilities clustered around three adjacent Norwegian cities emit approximately 700,000 tons of CO2 per year. This project aims to capture and store up to 90% of those emissions, benefiting multiple international CO2 reduction goals.
Baker Hughes & Horisont Energy explore offshore carbon capture, transportation, & storage
This groundbreaking MoU will jointly explore development and integration of technologies for the Polaris carbon storage project in Norway and collaborate on new processes and technologies across the CCTS value chain for the energy industry.
Exclusive Mixed Salt Process technology licensed from SRI International
Mixed salt process technology unlocks significant carbon capture separation cost reductions, providing total cost of ownership savings when decarbonizing energy and industrial operations.
CCUS is a net-zero imperative: here’s how we make it a reality
As the world attempts to build an energy mix that is net carbon neutral, it is easy to overlook the ongoing importance of energy sources that continue to produce carbon emissions. That’s why carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) technologies will undoubtedly play an important role in achieving a net-zero energy future.
Born from necessity in the hydrocarbons sector, we must accept some hard truths about CCUS and face the reality of its future. Despite its long history and relative maturity, the application of CCUS still involves uncertainties associated with emerging technologies. And scaling up will require collaboration never seen before from new partnerships and policy.
Can energy and industry collectively develop and deploy CCUS technologies both faster and at a much greater scale than ever before?

News and resources
While significant progress is being made, the industry needs to see a strong business case for CCUS. In addition to developing policies that promote investment in CCUS, DOE is investigating new ways to extract an economic benefit or additional value from capture CO2.
