What Are the Most Promising Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage Options for A2A?


This Challenge aims to answer the following question: What are the most promising CCUS options for A2A? Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) is an emission reduction technology applied across the energy system. It is an alternative to Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technology, since it not only captures and stores CO2 but also converts CO2 into valuable products, such as fuels and chemicals, after transporting it via ship, pipeline, rail or truck.

The urgency for policymakers to promote decarbonization through CCUS technologies has rapidly increased.
