Process Industries & Carbon Capture
The modern society is built on the manufacturing capabilities of our industries, but today we know, that our ways of production and consumption need to change in order to mitigate climate change and to create a sustainable society.
We support our clients to prepare for the biggest disruption since the beginning of globalization. Price pressure, digitalization, sustainability & relocalization is creating a fight on several fronts.
Delphi Data Labs acts as a sparring partner to help you navigating successfully through this period of change.
Even if you are active in a small niche segment - we are prepared to help you mastering your challenge.
Why are Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage pivotal?
By capturing carbon dioxide emissions directly from industrial processes, CCU mitigates greenhouse gas release, significantly reducing the carbon footprint. Moreover, the transformation of captured CO2 into valuable products drives circular economies, fostering a more sustainable approach to industrial production. Meanwhile, Carbon Storage ensures the safe and permanent containment of CO2, preventing its release into the atmosphere, and thereby curbing environmental impacts. Below we present possible use cases for CCUS in two sample indusries:
In the petrochemical industry, carbon capture technologies are vital in mitigating the environmental impact of production processes. During the refining of crude oil to produce petrochemicals like ethylene and propylene, substantial amounts of CO2 are generated.
Implementing carbon capture and storage (CCS) systems can capture these emissions and prevent their release into the atmosphere. The captured CO2 can then be utilized in various applications, such as enhancing oil recovery, producing valuable chemicals through Carbon Capture & Utilization (CCU), or permanently stored in suitable geological formations.
By embracing carbon capture solutions, the petrochemical industry not only demonstrates its commitment to sustainability but also opens the door to innovative practices that pave the way for a greener and more resilient future.
In the cement industry, carbon capture can be employed to capture CO2 emissions from cement kilns, a major source of carbon emissions in the manufacturing process.
The captured CO2 can then be utilized in the production of lightweight aggregates, which are materials used to replace traditional aggregates in construction, reducing the overall carbon footprint of construction projects.

Data & digitalization build the core of our consulting approach.
Unlike the industry standard, which relies mainly on interviews, our process is built on big data analytics. Our approach ensures highest academic research standards, and limits the negative impact of cognitive bias, which happens to occur in expert interviews. The human brain is simply not designed to correctly record and depict the nature of complex international multi-billion dollar markets.
That’s why statistical analysis of adequate data is the core of our research methodology. Nevertheless, we strongly rely on human expertise, which marks the starting & final process step in our work:
At first we map and understand the relationships in an industrial value chain to set the frame for our research. In the second step, we fill our value chain model with data from various sources to determine the market potential. In the next step of the process, our data is challenged by human expertise. We then integrate the feedback and adjust our data in a second human feedback & approval process.
