Title: Korea’s Efforts for Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage
Abstract: Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS), one of the key carbon-neutrality technologies, is a multidisciplinary technology to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) from large-scale sources of carbon energy (e.g., power plants and steelworks), produce economically valuable products with CO2, and store CO2 permanently in a deep underground without releasing CO2 into the atmosphere. As of 2020, the amount of global greenhouse gas emissions is estimated as 32 billion tonnes per annum. The contribution of the Republic of Korea to global emissions is 1.8% (578 MMtpa), ranking eighth. In 2020, Korea achieved a 7.5% decrease in greenhouse gas emissions resulting from the reduction in coal-fired power generation; however, emissions have risen 1.8% annually over the past decade. This presentation introduces CCUS technology, global CCUS trends, and Korea's recent efforts for CCUS in order to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
