The use of carbon capture can be traced back to the 1920s. Having been used primarily as a process to monetize the sale value of natural gas, the process is now considered the frontline solution to reducing new CO2 emissions from large stationary sources. The chapter provides an introduction to the different technologies used for carbon capture and connects them to the forthcoming chapters in this title. Development of carbon capture over the years is discussed, with a section dedicated to recent pilot and commercial installations. The sustainability level of the technology concept is described in detail, followed by its role in decarbonizing our future energy sources and meeting goals of the Paris Agreement. The chapter concludes with an opinion note on the possible scenarios for infrastructure development in carbon capture.
