This book collates research data on the current global implementation of carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS), analyses the challenges of CO2 management in the long-term, as well as locates the opportunities of such technologies for the context of specific countries, in this case being Qatar. The different types of CO2 sequestration technology are defined, their global implementation discussed, and other key characteristics measured. The study primarily utilizes a systematic review methodology to identify the latest trends in CCUS, as well as analyzing current technological, socio-economic, and political conditions using publicly available sources. Findings highlighted from the literature review are compiled into a survey, which is aimed at specifically targeted specialist professionals in the CCUS industry who can provide input about the applicability of particular CCUS solutions to Qatar. A deeper analysis of this methodology combines desktop and survey information for an analysis of the topic, including the specific suitability of technologies for Qatar, current initiatives, as well as providing insight on how the identified systems can be integrated for an infrastructure level carbon sequestration system. As part of the Qatar-based discussion, analysis findings are critically examined in relation to their economic feasibility in comparison to current environmental socioeconomic drivers, i.e., the vital economic out-put of the country’s dependence on the oil and gas sector, political threats from international relations and global climate change, as well as the lack of sustainable food and water sources in Qatar.
