Carbon Capture, Storage and Utilisation Technologies (CCS/CCU)
This is a call for papers for the Topic “Carbon Capture, Storage and Utilisation Technologies (CCS/CCU)”. The release and accumulation of greenhouse gases (GHGs), with carbon dioxide (CO2) being one of the primary GHGs, has significantly altered the natural environment and is responsible for global warming. Reducing these CO2 emissions is, therefore, of paramount importance. In particular, aiming at keeping a global temperature rise well below 2°C by the end of this century, according to the Paris Agreement, the European Union has set a binding target to cut at least 40% of the CO2 emissions by 2030 compared to 1990, and by 30% compared to 2005.
In this framework, one of the most promising alternatives to reducing the increasing amount of CO2 released into the atmosphere and its negative impact on global climate change is represented by CO2 capture and storage (CCS), consisting of the separation of CO2 from large industrial and energy-related sources, transport to a storage location and long-term isolation from the atmosphere. Likewise, the captured CO2 can be also utilised in industrial processes for the production of value-added chemicals/fuels (CCU), in concrete curing, mineral carbonation and algae cultivation. Likewise, it can be reused and isolated permanently via enhanced oil recovery (EOR), enhanced coal bed methane (ECBM) and enhanced geothermal system (EGS) processes.
The Topic “Carbon Capture Storage and Utilisation Technologies (CCS/CCU)” seeks high-quality works focusing on the latest technical developments and scientific advances of CCS/CCU technology. Relevant themes include but are not limited to the following:
- Carbon dioxide capture, transport (both by pipelines and ships), and sequestration;
- Technically, environmentally, and economically viable processes for the CO2 utilisation (e.g., as a feedstock for the production of value-added chemicals/fuels, EOR, ECBM, EGS, algae cultivation, etc.);
- Lifecycle assessment (LCA) for CCS/CCU.
