Repositioning CCUS for China’s Net Zero future
China has committed to achieving carbon neutrality before 2060, representing a serious pledge
from toplevel leadership while providing an enormous task to realise in just forty years. If CCUS is
to play the intended critical role in China’s net-zero effort, more work needs to be done to achieve
the technology suite’s potential.

prefabricated construction. By Adeel Ghayur, CO2CRC
 
Appraisal of CO2 capture schemes from gas processing facility
Based on an under construction Saudi Aramco gas plant, the authors compared
alternative CO2 capture schemes to appraise their costs and benefits

Projects and policy

CCS sector well placed for deployment following recent findings
The outlook for the carbon capture and storage industry is bright but the scale of
deployment required remains very apparent. By Jamie Burrows, Head of Business
Development – CCUS, Energy Systems at DNV
 
How to succeed at CCUS by overcoming major challenges
Choosing the right technology partner is essential in overcoming challenges in

Titanium and Carbon Fibre: material solutions for underground CO2 storage
CRA-Tubulars have developed a temperature, pressure and corrosion resistant
Titanium lined Composite Tubular that offers significant advantages for CO2 injection
applications and is being supported by Shell through its GameChanger program
 
Celebrating success and sharing lessons learned at Boundary Dam
As the world’s first commercial carbon capture and storage project, SaskPower’s
Boundary Dam Unit 3 (BD3) CCS facility is no stranger to outside attention
 
Progress Towards Operating a Viable Business in CO2
The report from the Carbon Dioxide Capture and Conversion (CO2CC) Program
explores how to operate a viable business in CO2, from capturing at point sources or
directly from air, to converting into a marketable commodity of value or storing it
safely underground
 
Methanol and synthetic fuels rely on CO2 utilisation
The challenge to substitute refined products that are derived from crude oil with
suitably convenient and cost-effective alternatives that have a sustainable
environmental impact is reliant on CO2 utilisation. By Stephen B. Harrison, Managing
Director, sbh4 consulting
 
North Sea Transition Deal, reduced costs can help spur UK CCS industry
The UK can secure a vital role in decarbonisation efforts at home and abroad by
capitalising on new technology to reduce costs and developing a robust CO2 transport
and storage network
 
Global Carbon Capture capacity to rise sixfold by 2030
The global capacity for carbon capture will rise to 279 million tons of CO2 captured
per year, according to research company BloombergNEF’s 2022 CCUS Market Outlook
 
Capture and utilisation
 
Leilac announces global licence agreement with Heidelberg Materials
Cement and lime decarbonisation technology company Leilac has signed a licence
agreement for the use of its technology with Heidelberg Materials

facility for sustainable coal refinery processes using Powder River Basin coal

Transport and storage

Converting CO2 to solid minerals underground for more stable storage
A new scientific article from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory discusses how CO2
converts from a gas to a solid in ultrathin films of water on underground rock surfaces
 
Offshore carbon storage needs to scale up for UK Net Zero goals
The UK will need to step up research and deployment of new offshore carbon storage
wells if it is to achieve the capacity required to deliver its net zero emissions plans
