Engineering excellence for carbon capture & storage

Carbon emitters in hard-to-abate sectors are turning to carbon capture and storage

Carbon emitters in hard-to-abate sectors, including cement and fertilizer production, are turning to carbon capture and storage solutions. As the lens sharpens on all carbon-emitting industries, the challenge for hard-to-abate sectors is identifying and executing large-scale solutions that meet the unique problems that traditional renewables alone cannot solve.

Two sectors in particular, cement and fertilizer production, fall into the hard-to-abate category. The demand for these products is increasing, and both are critical to developed and developing nations. Together with other hard-to-abate industries such as steel, petrochemicals and aluminium, they are responsible for approximately 20% of the world’s carbon emissions. The problem lies in the production process.

While replacing sections of the process with renewable energy sources is possible, much of the CO2 emissions result from limestone, clay and other materials in a kiln. CO2 emissions result from the energy used to fire the material and the chemical reaction produced from the mixture’s exposure to heat.

CCS can play a significant role in reducing the carbon emission created by chemical reactions. Working with other renewables to create the necessary energy and CCS to capture the emissions from the chemical reaction, the two-factor issue can be substantially averted.

What is the primary driver stopping CCS from being employed?

Carbon capture and storage has been in development for over fifty years, and the increase in take-up of the technology around the world is shaping as a game changer for many industries. Large carbon emitters committed to reducing their carbon footprint and having the foresight and courage to move forward with a highly adaptable, tested and proven technology are turning to CCS as a viable and sustainable solution that can be employed now.

The roadblock for many emitters is cost. Economic levers influence business decisions, and short-term pain for long-term gain is a hard rock to move. However, the cost of doing nothing or waiting to see who blinks first has much greater ramifications on the business and the world’s ambitions to meet its Paris Agreement targets by 2050.
