5 The CCS Value Chain

Key Findings:

  • Status and volume of projects correspond to very small fraction of emissions reduction targets
  • Maturity of CCS now may be similar to LNG corresponding maturity in 1960s to 1970s
  • Capture technologies are typically classified Pre-Combustion, Post-Combustion and Oxyfuel
  • Projects in operation and construction are dominated by capture from Natural Gas and Synthesis Gas processing - similar to Pre-Combustion Acid Gas Removal
