Climate change is one of today's global environmental problems, and the main problem
contributing to this is the increase in greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere, which are
increasing day by day. Carbon dioxide, which is one of the greenhouse gases, is the most
basic reference pollutant of global warming due to both its concentration and its long stay in
the atmosphere. For this reason, in order to keep global warming below 2 °C all over the
world, ways are sought to reduce carbon dioxide emissions or to keep them under control
before they are released into the atmosphere. In this study, the applications of Carbon Capture
and Storage (CCS) technologies, which is one of the methods of keeping CO2 emissions under
control before they are released into the atmosphere, were investigated in the cement industry.
For this purpose, the current CCS studies for the cement industry, which is responsible for 27% of global anthropogenic CO2 emissions from industrial sources worldwide, were
examined, and the potential storage areas and application of CCS for the Turkish cement
industry, which has an important share in world cement production, were evaluated.
Considering the storage areas and technical experience, the CO2 captured from the two
cement factories in Siirt and Mardin provinces was determined to be transported to the
Batman region and used for improved oil recovery, and the estimated amount of oil that could
be produced with this method was calculated. In addition, technical and economic proposals
for the application of CCS technologies in Turkey and for future research are presented.
