CCS is a process in which carbon dioxide (CO2) from huge sources, such as fossil fuel fired power plants, is captured, and transported to a storage site in order not to pollute the environment. Typical sites for CO2 storage are underground geological formations, such as closed caves and wells.
CO2 is a greenhouse gas and excess concentrations of CO2 are fatal for the majority of the living organisms on the planet; greenhouse gases retain heat and increases the surrounding temperature. CO2, once captured, can be stored for long durations using the following major trapping mechanisms, namely buoyant, residual, solubility, and mineral. Although, all the aforementioned mechanisms are efficient, owing to the limitations of current technologies and injection rates, buoyant and residual trapping mechanisms are the most favored ones for resource assessments.
Developed nations are largely involved in the CCS market, as they can afford to invest resources like money, manpower, and time to preserve the environment. Countries like United Kingdom, Netherlands, France, United States, and Germany have understood the implications of greenhouse emissions. These countries are active in organizing climate change discussions and have taken various important decisions concerning global warming in the past. In the United States, CCS is also used commercially for the excavation of gas reserves and oil reserves that are otherwise unobtainable.
North America dominates the market for CCS, followed by the European region. Countries like U.K Netherlands, Germany, and France are the most active participants in the CCS market. The regions under rest of the world and Asia-Pacific segments are expected to increase their market share during the forecast period. The countries like Brunei and Algeria have undertaken huge projects in the CCS market.
Market Dynamics of the Global Carbon Capture and Storage Market:
Industries across the globe are increasingly utilizing coal reserves to meet its energy demands. Rapid industrialization has resulted in a tremendous increase in coal utilization. This has resulted in massive CO2 emissions, which necessitates the adoption of CCS. However, there are several challenges faced by CCS; CO2 might seep through the storage site and its increased concentration would prove fatal to the heterotrophs (living organisms that cannot make their own food). The lack of suitable storage sites for the large amounts of CO2 emissions is also a major problem. The huge amount of resources used by the CCS process is a deterrent to many developing nations who do not have the money or the resources for the same.
