Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS)

Request Information

Program Overview:

UH offers an 8-week, online executive education course that examines the technology, economics, and challenges of Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS). The UH CCUS course is taught by world recognized experts from the energy industry.

The energy transition poses significant challenges to our society and way of life and requires three fundamentals for energy sustainability:

  • accessible and reliable supply and access,
  • affordable and globally cost-competitive supply and consumption, and
  • environmentally and socially responsible supply and consumption.

CCUS is a fundamental requirement for successful de-carbonization and is recognized as such by the International Energy Agency and the US Department of Energy. The broad commercial deployment of CCUS will impact industries such as oil and gas, petrochemicals, electric power, cement and manufacturing as well as hydrogen, and the circular plastics economy.
