Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage has had a long history. It has been applied extensively in the natural gas domain for treatment of natural gas (sour gas) and the production of CO2 for enhanced gas recovery (EGR). Interest for CCUS grew steadily with the increase of climate mitigation and green power production. CCUS was seen as an excellent technology to decarbonize existing power systems quickly and effectively. The CO2 itself could then be stored underground or used for chemical production or enhanced oil recovery. However, this never happened and CCUS stalled. In recent years the interest for CCUS has re-emerged but not for the power sector. Hard to decarbonize sectors like industry, steel, cement and chemistry look towards this technology as a potential lifeline. In addition, starting an hydrogen economy by first producing blue hydrogen from natural gas with CCS is seen as a serious option. Contributing to a renaissance of CCUS. But will it now finally come?
