Reducing the carbon footprint of industry: CO2 capture, use and storage

CO2 capture, use and storage (CCUS) technology consists in capturing CO2 from its source of production, using it and storing it in an underground facility. It is of interest to industrial players since it would enable them to significantly reduce their CO2 emissions. But this promising solution still has to
