What is carbon capture?

Carbon capture involves collecting the CO2 from its source of production so that it can be stored and reused. This is part of CCUS (Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage).

CO2 is a greenhouse gas normally produced by certain industrial processes. Its capture at the source of production, then its storage underground, can thus prevent it being released into the atmosphere. It is also possible to reuse CO2 that has been captured and stored to produce synthetic methane or biofuels.

This is all port of a global CCUS (Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage) process, which is now the focus of a variety of research projects around the world due to the opportunity it represents in combating greenhouse gas emissions. This process of unavoidable energy reduction an interconnection is an additional tool in the development of multi-energy grids.
