CCUS is sometimes associated only with the capture of emissions from fossil fuel or industrial ‘point sources’. However for the purposes of this report, we include Direct Air Carbon Capture (DACC) and Bioenergy with carbon capture (BECC) as forms of carbon capture and storage technology. Both of these technologies can provide negative emissions and are forms of carbon dioxide removal.
