We will look at five ways in which industrial processes might be made less carbon intensive through CCS.
All five options store CO2 onshore or offshore in a saline aquifer or depleted gas field:
Post-combustion coal fired power plant
Precombustion integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) coal fired power plant
Refinery, steel, ammonia or cement plant
Removal of CO2 from natural gas
Biomass power plant
Onshore or offshore CO2 stores are most likely in saline aquifers or depleted gas fields.
