Advanced seal technologies for CCUS and sCO2 applications support energy transition initiatives
Companies increasingly are prioritizing energy transition initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions known to cause climate change. They’re also taking significant steps to operate more efficiently. Traditional fossil fuels are expected to remain an essential feedstock for some time to keep up with energy demand; nonetheless, carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases emitted during industrial processes must be reduced.
Critical technologies will enable this energy transition. Among them is carbon capture usage and storage (CCUS), in which CO2 emissions are captured from sources like coal-fired power plants and industrial processes. The CO2 is then reused on-site, shipped to other industrial users, or stored underground to prevent its release into the atmosphere.
