HIGHLIGHTS

  • Point carbon capture is one of many clean energy transition options, which refer to the process of capturing carbon at the source from heavy industries like power, steel, cement, and chemicals.
  • Technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) can lead to enhanced carbon capture efficiency.
  • To achieve net zero emissions, it is time to focus on technological solutions, combining the knowledge and expertise from materials science, process engineering, and digital technologies, to make carbon capture, utilization, and storage techno-economically feasible.
