Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage - Leases

What is it: 

Carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) is a system that captures the carbon dioxide generated by large-scale energy intensive processes, such as cement and steel production, chemical processing, hydrogen production and power generation, thereby preventing it from entering the atmosphere and contributing to climate change.

The captured carbon dioxide is sequestered deep underground for safe and permanent storage. In some applications, the captured carbon dioxide can be recycled and used to manufacture useful products, thus giving it economic value.
