    C-Zero | Solid Carbon as an Alternative to CO2 Sequestration

    Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) is the leading strategy for lowering direct emissions from the use of natural gas, but the term is used primarily in reference to the post-combustion capture of CO2. C-Zero is developing a process for pre-combustion carbon capture wherein solid carbon is removed from natural gas as a pure solid. This provides expanded options for carbon sequestration and beneficial uses.
