  • Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage can play a critical role in climate change mitigation.
  • Ample emerging technologies are available with adequate capture capacities and biotic and abiotic forms of storage.
  • Utilization processes include enhanced oil recovery and biochar.
  • Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage deployment has been largely limited by social and economic barriers.
  • Policy driven solutions may help drive costs down, engender social acceptance, and increase CCUS deployment.
