Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage: Separating Fact From Fiction

by Andrew Isaacs, Natàlia Costa i Coromina, and Aditya Aggarwal

In 1992, 179 countries effectively agreed to end the fossil-fuel age at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development.

In 2022, the United Nations stated 'carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS) can play a significant role in mitigating carbon emissions.' Some climate experts considered CCUS necessary for reaching net-zero Greenhouse gas emissions. Others thought technology and infrastructure were too nascent to make a difference. Had decades-old pledges to stop fossil fuel use been replaced by capturing emissions?
