Carbon Capture, Utilisation, and Storage: A Beacon for South Africa’s Energy Future

Carbon Capture, Utilisation, and Storage (CCUS) offers South Africa a crucial solution to balance economic growth with environmental sustainability. The Council for Geoscience’s (CGS) dedication to advancing CCUS technology, in partnership with various stakeholders, is a positive move. Integrating CCUS with renewable energy, creating supportive policies, and increasing public awareness can lead to a resilient, sustainable energy future. South Africa’s proactive efforts in CCUS can become a model for other coal-dependent countries, demonstrating that with determination, innovation, and collaboration, it is possible to meet climate goals and ensure a prosperous future.
