Carbon capture, use, and storage (CCUS) has a vital role to play in helping to meet the objectives of the Paris Agreement. It can achieve deep emissions reductions in existing power infrastructure and energy-intensive industries that rely on the use of fossil fuels.
But it requires collaboration to become a reality, which is why BP sponsors the Gulf Coast Carbon Center (GCCC) at the University of Texas’s Bureau of Economic Geology.
For two decades, the GCCC has sought to further academic and industry understanding of the practical and cost-effective ways to plan, operate, monitor and close CCUS projects. Its research studies the technology, engineering, stakeholder relations, policy, and economics needed to make it a widely deployable option.
The GCCC does this by:
