Abu Dhabi CCS (Phase 1 being Emirates Steel Industries)

Abu Dhabi CCS is the world’s first fully commercial CCS facility in the iron and steel industry, and involves the capture of CO2 via a new build CO2 Compression Facility using high purity CO2 produced as a by-product of the direct reduced iron-making process at the Emirates Steel Industries factory in Mussafah. Launched in November 2016, the compression facility has a capture capacity of 0.8 Mtpa. The captured CO2 is transported via pipeline to Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) oil reservoirs for enhanced oil recovery.
