The Australian Government has launched a $250 million program to deploy carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS) at scale.
The CCUS Hubs and Technologies program looks to boost Australia’s CCUS capabilities by:
CCUS is key to reducing emissions from heavy industry and energy generation. The program will complement the Clean Hydrogen Industrial Hubs program with potential CO2 storage sites in some priority hub locations.
The government’s Technology Investment Roadmap identified carbon capture and storage as a priority low emissions technology. The CCUS Hubs and Technologies program will support the roadmap's stretch goal of CO2 compression, transport and storage under $20 per tonne.
