The Future Direction of CCUS in the Oil and Gas Industry
A recent post from the Department of Energy shared their efforts about the future of Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage:
The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy is committed to helping the United States continue to rely on traditional sources of secure and affordable energy, while enhancing environmental protection. Carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) technologies are key to working toward this mission.
Used in power plants and industrial facilities, these technologies capture carbon dioxide (CO2) before it enters the atmosphere, and either reuse it or store it securely in the ground. CCUS technologies are applicable to coal and natural gas plants and to a wide variety of industrial processes, including cement, steel, ethanol, and refineries.
