Carbon Capture Utilisation and Storage

Our Work

Carbon Capture Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) is one of the fields that are crucial in reducing carbon emissions in processes that are hard to abate, such as cement for construction or the refining of steel. Capturing these CO2 emissions provides an opportunity for conversion to useful materials where the carbon is locked up.

The CCUS focus area at ICAM is exploring ways in which CO2 can be captured and safely stored, as well as looking at novel methods for its reduction to useful organic products. The key issues include catalytic efficiency, product selectivity, energy intensity, electrode stability, and alternatives to critical raw materials such as precious metals.
