Abstract: Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) technology is an effective and economic method to reduce incredibly increasing greenhouse gas emissions. Mathematical modelling and evaluating are the key technologies for CCUS development. In this paper, we discuss the model and evaluation of CO2 capture from power plant, CO2 transport by pipeline, CO2-Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) and storage, respectively. Then, we investigate the whole process model and evaluation of CCUS based on the aforementioned sub-models. The purpose of this paper is to review the state-of-the-art of such research and development, and point out the unsolved issues and the future progression work.

Keywords: CCUS modelling; CCUS evaluation; carbon capture utilisation and storage; power plants; pipelines; EOR; carbon storage; enhanced oil recovery; greenhouse gases; GHG emissions; mathematical modelling; CO2; carbon dioxide; process modelling.
