ZEP Network Technology produced a report on Carbon Capture and Use/Utilization (CCU) in April 2016, which highlights the potentially important economic and climate impacts that different types of CCU could have in Europe.

The report concludes that whilst CCU could have a key role in terms of unlocking the business case for CO2 capture and managing emissions in industrial regions poorly suited to CCS, the climatic value of different types of CCU needs to be better understood. The report provides evidence to show that the application of CCU could offer two important benefits: first of all the uptake of CO2 and, to a certain degree, the reduction of CO2 emission into the atmosphere and, second, a significant economic value to a CCS project.
