Technological Advancements Enabling Carbon Capture and Sequestration

Technological Advancements Enabling Carbon Capture and Sequestration

Mitigating greenhouse gases is the way ahead to avert catastrophes arising from climate change. Permanently removing greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere is a huge and urgent task. Emission reduction technologies are necessary to achieve deep decarbonization in emission-intensive industries and net-zero emissions in the long term. Industry participants are adopting technologies adhering to reduced emissions protocols, along with energy-efficient processes. Among the decarbonization technologies, carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) processes have been identified as the potential game changer to enable stakeholders to achieve carbon neutrality globally. CCS processes are among the most important technological solutions to reduce emissions. The processes involve capturing carbon dioxide from point and non-point sources and permanently injecting and storing it underground.
