Carbon capture technology helps in capturing and storing carbon dioxide which helps in producing low-carbon emissions. This technology is also called carbon sequestration. In this process, the carbon is taken from the environment directly, transported, and stored underground through geological structures.
CCS can harness CO2 from varied industries, such as offshore oil and gas extraction, steel and cement production, or power generation. There are various companies working in this environment like Dastur Energy. Dastur Energy is a next-generation carbon capture technology company, for clean and sustainable energy solutions to ensure affordable access energy to for everyone.
Accelerating the adoption of carbon capture technologies is critical to reducing emissions from these power plants and industrial plants such as cement and steel. Since many experts see hydrogen as the clean fuel of the future and expect it to play an important role in decarbonizing the industrial sector, processes such as natural gas reforming with carbon capture technology appear to be the cheapest option for producing clean hydrogen. Hydrogen direct reduction iron will be the key to producing high-purity steel in a carbon-free future.
Hydrogen and carbon capture storage technologies help in the emissions reductions in the IEA's Steel Sector Sustainability Scenario. The International Energy Agency expects the steel industry to rely more on technological improvements, waste recycling, and carbon capture and storage to cut emissions by 50% under ambitious climate targets, even as the heavy use of coal grows.
