Carbon capture and storage or carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) is the process of capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from point industrial sources before it enters the atmosphere, often compressing and transporting it, and storing it in underground geological formations. In cases where CO2 can be used for enhanced energy recovery, the process is referred to as carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS).
CCS can be applied to a vast number of industries comprising fossil fuel-based power plants, oil refineries, natural gas processing, petrochemicals, cement production, steelmaking, synthetic fuel plants, and fossil fuel-based hydrogen production plants (Blue Hydrogen).
The successful implementation of a CCS/CCUS project depends on a well-selected and coordinated project execution strategy. Our profound experience in project development combined with a knowledgeable team, providing support across the full value chain of CCS/CCUS, enables us to provide related consultancy services from the early stages of the project up to the operation phase.
ILF’s in-house experts cover all disciplines across the full value chain of CCS/CCUS projects. These disciplines include process engineering, mechanical and piping engineering, pipeline engineering, electrical and control engineering, civil and structural engineering, environmental engineering, geotechnical and reservoir engineering, etc.
