Innovations in Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) for Sustainable Energy: Research and Development Perspectives

Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) is a rapidly evolving field with significant implications for the global transition to a low-carbon economy. Understanding and advancing CCUS technologies and their role in achieving a sustainable future are crucial steps in shaping our collective journey towards a decarbonized world.

We invite high-quality contributions from researchers, practitioners, and policymakers that shed light on various aspects of CCUS, aiming to foster a deeper understanding of the field and facilitate its continued advancement.

Contributions may take the form of original research articles, reviews, case studies, or opinion pieces. The scope of this special issue is broad and we welcome submissions that cover a range of topics related to CCUS, including but not limited to:

CCUS Technologies and Systems:
    • Post-combustion capture (solvents, adsorbents, membranes)
    • Pre-combustion capture
    • Oxy-fuel combustion
    • Direct air capture
    • Biological capture
    • Chemical looping combustion
    • Cryogenic separation
    • Supercritical CO2 extraction
    • Electrochemical reduction
Storage and Sequestration Methods:
  • Geological storage
  • Ocean storage
  • Enhanced oil recovery
  • Agricultural sequestration
  • Blue carbon
  • Biochar production
  • Mineral carbonation
  • Forestation
Carbon Utilization and Circular Economy:
  • CO2 Mineralization
  • CO2 conversion to chemicals
  • CO2 conversion to plastics
  • CO2 conversion to carbon-neutral fuels
  • CO2 conversion to carbon fiber
  • Carbonation of concrete and carbon-negative concrete
Other Applications and Considerations:
  • CO2 sequestration through enhanced weathering
  • CO2 utilization in the food and beverage industry
  • Carbon capture and utilization for building materials
  • Carbon capture and utilization for agriculture

We particularly encourage submissions that provide comprehensive environmental and economic assessments of CCUS technologies, addressing the challenges and opportunities associated with their implementation.
