DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Market - Segmented by Type, Application, and Geography - Trends and Forecasts (2015 - 2020)" report to their offering.
CCS is a process in which carbon dioxide (CO2) from huge sources, such as fossil fuel fired power plants, is captured, and transported to a storage site in order not to pollute the environment. Typical sites for CO2 storage are underground geological formations, such as closed caves and wells.
CO2 is a greenhouse gas and excess concentrations of CO2 are fatal for the majority of the living organisms on the planet; greenhouse gases retain heat and increases the surrounding temperature. CO2, once captured, can be stored for long durations using the following major trapping mechanisms, namely buoyant, residual, solubility, and mineral. Although all the aforementioned mechanisms are efficient, owing to the limitations of current technologies and injection rates, buoyant and residual trapping mechanisms are the most favored ones for resource assessments.
Developed nations are largely involved in the CCS market, as they can afford to invest resources like money, manpower, and time to preserve the environment. Countries like United Kingdom, Netherlands, France, United States, and Germany have understood the implications of greenhouse emissions. These countries are active in organizing climate change discussions and have taken various important decisions concerning global warming in the past.
Some of the major market players in the global CCS market are:
- Aker Solutions AS
- Alstom Energy (A subsidiary of GE Power)
- Carbon Clean Solutions
- Dakota Gasification
- Honeywell UOP
- Schlumberger Carbon Services
- Shell Cansolv
- Summit Carbon Capture LLC
