Frequently asked questions

What is CCUS?

CCUS (Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage) is an emission reduction process developed to prevent large amounts of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere. The process of CCS consists of capturing CO2 produced by large industrial plants (such as power plants, refineries, steel mills, still and cement plants, and hydrogen production plants),  compressing it for transportation via pipeline or ship, and then injecting it into underground rock formations at carefully selected sites. The CO2 can be stored in dedicated storage sites such as depleted oil and gas reservoirs or deep saline formations, or it can be injected underground for Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) purposes.
