Carbon Capture Technology – Eliminating CO2 Emissions

Eliminating CO2 emissions from cement and steel industries can be a difficult process, so Carbon capture technology is the best option for decarbonizing certain industries. Various studies have shown that carbon capture technology becomes an integral part of low-carbon technology.

Carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage can significantly reduce emissions from large stationary CO2 sources, including some industries such as coal and natural gas-fired power plants and ethanol and natural gas refineries. You can also get knowledge about carbon capture and storage in steel industry via

Industrial processes that have demonstrated large-scale carbon capture and put them into commercial operation include coal gasification, ethanol production, fertilizer production, natural gas processing, hydrogen production in refineries, and most recently, coal-fired power generation.

CCUS refers to a group of technologies designed to capture carbon dioxide from high-risk activities, such as power generation or plants that use fossil fuels or biomass as fuel.

Depending upon the production of C02, emissions range from 0.4 to over 2 tonnes per tonne of crude steel. While most of the major steel players in the world have set out ambitious carbon abatement goals, there are several challenges in the way:

  • Substitution of the BF-BOF route
  • Dependence on renewable energy
  • Suitability of alternative reductant/fuel

This technology helps in promising the global reduction of industrial greenhouse gas emissions.
