What is CCS

CCS which stands for Carbon capture and Sequestration encompasses a number of technologies that involves the capture of CO2 from power plants and other industrial sources.

How CCS works

Energy from fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas is released during the combustion (burning) process and the emission of CO2 is a by-product of this process.

The Climate Change Challenge

Greenhouse gas emissions and carbon dioxide emissions in particular, have become an increasing concern in the power generation industry.

Information Resources

Information resources relevant to CCS are available in the form of research articles and technical reports.                                         




KACST- Technology Innovation Center on Carbon Capture and Sequestration

This proposal was invited by the King Abdulaziz City for Science & Technology, Riyadh under the KACST Technology Innovation Centers program. The King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals proposed to establish the Carbon Capture and Sequestration Technology Innovation Center at KFUPM. Professor M. A. Habib is serving as the Center’s Principal Investigator.  

The goal is to establish a Carbon Capture and Sequestration Technology Innovation Center (KACST-TIC on CCS) at King Fahad University of Petroleum & Minerals that will address the technologies of Carbon Capture and Sequestration that can be utilized in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The main goal of the Center (KACST-TIC on CCS) is to develop strategic technology initiatives in the area of Carbon Capture and Sequestration. Other goals include: 1) Creating, developing and enhancing capacities that are capable of transforming fundamental research into new technologies in the area of CCS; 2) Enhancing infrastructure for research and education in the area of CCS including facilities, instrumentation and partnerships; 3) Promoting university-industry research collaboration and technology transfer in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia related to Carbon Capture and Sequestration; and 4) Promoting the role of large as well as small firms in developing new technologies of Carbon Capture and Sequestration.
