Context & Environment

CCUS is one of the key technologies that TotalEnergies is developing and deploying to meet its net zero carbon ambitions. The flagship ONE R&D CCUS Program actively contributes to this ambition. Beyond point source CO2 capture on industrial emitters, CO2 removal from the atmosphere will be required at large scale to help mitigate climate change. Direct Air Capture is one of the solutions to deliver negative emissions when coupled with geological storage and an essential brick towards net zero e-fuels. First generation DAC technologies are still very costly and require lots of low carbon intensity energy. The ambition of the activities led by the job holder is to evaluate promising innovative technologies that will have the capacity to maximize carbon negativity at reasonable cost. The approach will be highly collaborative working hand in hand with selected startups.
