CCUS has been touted as a route to not only directly reduce annual emissions, but also facilitate the production of blue hydrogen. The scale of carbon that must be captured to prevent temperatures from rising beyond 1.5°C is already immense. The IEA estimates that 7.6bn t CO₂/yr must be captured by 2050 to reach net zero that year. However, only 21 CCUS facilities—capturing c.40mn t CO₂/yr—had come o
