Carbon Capture, Utilisation, and Storage (CCUS) in India


 
Q1: What is Carbon Capture, Utilisation, and Storage (CCUS)?

A1: CCUS is a technology aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions by capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from sources like power plants and industrial processes, then reusing or storing it permanently.

Q2: How does CCUS work?

A2: CCUS works in three steps: Capture (capturing CO2 at its emission source), Utilisation (reusing captured CO2 in various industries), and Storage (storing captured CO2 in underground geological formations).

Q3: What are the environmental benefits of CCUS?

A3: CCUS significantly reduces the environmental impact of industrial processes and power generation by preventing CO2 from entering the atmosphere.

Q4: What are the industrial applications of CCUS?

A4: CCUS enables industries with high CO2 emissions, like cement and steel manufacturing, to continue operation while reducing their environmental footprint.

Q5: What is India's approach to CCUS technology?

A5: India is actively engaging in international collaborations and research initiatives to overcome the challenges facing CCUS technology and support its long-term climate goals. India has also set a target of 30% reduction in carbon intensity by 2030.

Q6: How can CCUS contribute to India's energy security?

A6: CCUS can improve the economic feasibility of India's oil fields by utilizing captured CO2 for enhanced oil recovery, thus supporting energy security. Additionally, CCUS can help India reduce its dependence on imported fossil fuels.

Q7: What are the challenges facing CCUS technology in India?

A7: The challenges facing CCUS technology in India include high costs, technological hurdles, and storage safety and monitoring issues. Additionally, India faces challenges in scaling up CCUS deployment and creating a supportive policy framework.

Q8: How can CCUS help India achieve its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs)?

A8: CCUS can help India achieve its NDCs by reducing greenhouse gas emissions from industrial sources, which is a key component of India's climate change mitigation strategy. ‎
