Many discussions are centred on the vital role of CCUS in reducing carbon dioxide emissions while ensuring energy security globally. Leaders recognise the importance of CCUS technology as an essential tool in the global effort to achieve deep reductions in carbon dioxide emissions and prevent global temperature rises in future decades.

Analysis by the IEA consistently shows that CCUS is a critical part of a complete clean energy technology portfolio that provides a sustainable path for mitigating greenhouse gas emissions while ensuring energy security.

Many nations and organisations have pledged to do their part in reducing carbon emissions to achieve their net zero targets. However, the main question is: “Do we have everything in place to deliver our promises with CCUS?”

This session will engage leaders to discuss opportunities and challenges, share actionable insights, best practices, and technological advancements in CCUS and its role as a catalyst in accelerating clean energy transition.

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) has been consistently utilised as a tool to directly address emissions from the energy and industrial sectors, and forms a significant component of plans to reach net-zero. However, despite the critical importance of the technology and substantial R&D to date, there is currently a huge gap between the current global deployment of this technology and that which will be ultimately required.

Among the issues that this panel will discuss include:

  • What are the major factors that contribute to the deployment of CCS projects?
  • Current status of CCS storage
  • Data and methods

The CCUS project pipeline is showing robust growth with 27 commercial CCUS facilities operating around the world as of September 2021, with a total capture capacity of about 40 million tonnes of CO2 per year. Capacity in the pipeline, however, has risen by 46% in the first nine months of 2021 and now totals 111 million tonnes per year.

According to the IEA, more than 100 new CCUS facilities were announced in 2021. There are CCUS projects or planned developments in 25 countries around the world, with three-quarters in the US and Europe. Growth is accelerating as governments and companies focus on how to implement net zero targets, interest in low-carbon hydrogen grows, and CCUS hubs open scalable options for industrial decarbonisation.

There are currently around 40 CCUS hubs in development around the world. Over half of these and the most advanced are in Europe, where a combination of rising carbon prices and net-zero commitments are driving the search for large-scale industrial decarbonisation. There is a growing tendency for consolidation and collaboration among these emerging hubs.

This panel session will discuss:

  • Strategy in maturating CCS / CCUS projects
  • National, regional, and global carbon markets, and how to make them work for CCUS

Averting the most catastrophic effects of climate change will need us to limit global warming to 1.5oC. This cannot be achieved without removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Besides capturing carbon from fossil fuel plants directly, there are a variety of ways to remove CO2 from the atmosphere. The problem is that many of these strategies are still relatively expensive.Finding new commercial uses for the captured CO2 is key to lowering the costs of these technologies and scaling them up.

Captured CO2 has long been injected into depleted oil fields to enhance oil recovery. It has also been pumped into greenhouses to boost plant growth. But today, many companies and researchers are developing new uses and products for captured CO2, such as to develop a variety of concrete, chemicals, and fuels. McKinsey & Company estimates that by 2030, CO2-based products could be worth between $800 billion and $1 trillion, and the use of CO2 could reduce greenhouse gas emissions by a billion metric tons yearly. The Global Carbon Initiative projects that, with the proper incentives, by 2030 the overall CO2 based product industry could utilise seven billion metric tons of CO2 each year: about 15 percent of our current global emissions.

This panel session will also discuss:

  • Techno-economics of the sector and how it informs decision making and investment
  • Value chain comparisons between offshore versus onshore, or by countries that either have tax versus other incentives
