World energy consumption has been increasing steadily since industrialization, and especially within the last 30 years, this recent increase is also the major cause for the increase in CO2 concentration in the atmosphere, climate change is a key issue in power industry. Fossil fuels play a central role in our energy consumption. To make progress in low carbon development, more efforts should be made, in order to set up ways to reduce GHG emissions under current social, economic, technological and resource conditions. This task will undergo pressures and face challenges, but will also provide incentives and opportunities. This paper discusses the perspectives for development at the Progress on Carbon Capture Use and Storage (CCUS/CCS) in fossil fuels Power Plants, which is a vital component to reduce future carbon emissions, in the global fight against climate change. This year, power companies began invitations for tenders of the new thermal power facilities. The increase of them, however, brings up another serious issue: how to cope with combating global warming. That is why CCUS/ CCS is receiving more attention nowadays together with the discussion on carbon dioxide emission reduction. Electric machinery companies, putting focus on CO2 capture technologies have successfully developed the capture technologies for coal and gas fired power stations with their own funds and/or in collaboration with power companies. To do this, they undertook a process to investigate various methods such as adsorption, absorption, membranes and cryogenic, through which they obtained abundant data on pros and cons of the technologies. This paper analyzed the growth of CO2 emissions by fossil fuels. We show the CCS projects status; Challenges, SWOT analysis, and the currently Global CCS Technology Activity. For this, we consider the Large Scale Integrated Projects (LSIP). Besides, we make a review of the methods of separation of CO2, their status, advantages, challenges, etc.
