The aim of this talk is to a give a quasi-industrial perspective of the area of CO2 capture using adsorption. Note that TotalEnergies does not sell any anthropogenic CO2 capture technology which allows the possibility to be agnostic in terms of reflections made. This discussion will however be biased towards approaches and adsorbent materials that are being demonstrated at pilot centers or in demonstration projects around the world. Areas in which materials research can play a role will be highlighted, with the hope that we can make bold advances in the area of CO2 capture by adsorption. Such approaches may provide bricks to future CCS and CCU chains, and which will contribute to our effort to limit climate change.
