Carbon capture, utilization and storage

Carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) is a crucial enabler for the energy transition. It helps industrial companies – and entire regions – decarbonize, while maintaining and creating jobs. 

OGCI is working with industry, governments and other investors to scale up CCUS, in particular through the development of CCUS hubs.

We've updated the CCUS Hub Playbook

The CCUS Hub Playbook has been read and downloaded by thousands of people all over the world in the past year. So we’ve updated it and added new insights, data and sources, plus a few new sections:

  • CCUS hub trends in the US, Europe and Asia-Pacific
  • How different industries are using CCUS
  • Policy incentives by country
  • Translations in 9 languages

Could there be a CCUS hub in your region?

The CCUS Hub Search is an interactive map tool, developed by BCG and OGCI. It identifies 279 potential CCUS hubs in 56 countries. It matches clusters of carbon dioxide sources from a range of emitting industries with possible storage locations and defines possible and optimal hub areas, based on estimates of cost per tonne.

The tool is designed as a starting point for political decision-makers, industrial emitters, carbon transport and strorage providers and potential hub developers who want an overview of the potential viable CCUS hubs in their country, region or sector.

While the key utilization pathways identified in the report could help play a role in broader decarbonization efforts, that role would remain small compared to CO2 storage. Current regulation, which mostly focuses on supporting capture and/or storage, will need to be beefed up to help scale up additional technologies to use the captured CO2

A new study from OGCI has identified opportunities for CCUS to decarbonize Brazil’s iron, steel and ethanol industries, while creating economic value and jobs. CCUS is widely viewed as an essential technology that can decarbonize hard-to-abate industries such as steel, chemicals and cement and is one of the most cost-effective ways to achieve the Paris Agreement net zero ambitions.
