The Paris Agreement goal is to limit global warming to well below 2 preferably to 1.5 degrees Celsius compared to pre-industrial levels. To achieve this long-term temperature goal, global greenhouse gas emissions need to peak as soon as possible to achieve a climate neutral world by mid-century.
CCS+ is expected to play a critical role in reducing emissions from hard-to-abate sectors as well as supporting the circular economy, through utilization activities (CCU). CCS+ technologies could also generate permanent carbon removals when combining CCS with CO2 from biomass (Bio-CCS, e.g. BECCS) or with direct air capture (DACCS) or through mineralization processes.
