    Carbon Capture Potential in Egypt

    Tuesday, 16th November 2021

    To begin with, it can be noticed with the increasing oil and gas activities, that there has been an exponentially large amount of greenhouse gases (GHGs) that have been emitted into the atmosphere. This particular phenomenon adheres mostly to Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions. With that, the technique of trapping CO2 produced during power production and industrial operations and preserving it so that it is not released into the environment is known as carbon capture and sequestration/storage (CCS). CCS technologies offer a lot of promise for lowering CO2 emissions in energy systems. CCS-equipped plants can collect nearly all of the CO2 that is emitted.
