About CCUS

What is CCUS?

 

CCUS stands for Carbon Capture, Utilisation & Storage. It derives from merging the terms Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU). It encompasses a wide spectrum of technologies to capture CO2 from point sources or directly from the air and either store it porous geological formations that are typically located several kilometres under the earth’s surface, on or offshore (CCS), or use it to produce valuable products like fuels for transport, chemicals and materials (CCU). 

CCUS projects and partners

 

In this section, a map of European CCUS projects and the associated partners will be developed with data gathered throughout the course of IMPACTS9. Project developers will also have the possibility to introduce their projects through an on-line project form.
