The Institute is pleased to help launch a suite of groundbreaking reports for the CCS community. Together, the reports provide unique insights into CCS policy, legal, technological and project updates from leading authorities and often, direct from the projects themselves.
The openCCS project handbook is a freely available guide for practitioners to deliver CCS projects. It covers the full CCS project lifecycle: from project definition to closure across capture, transport and storage. The content covering the complete set of activities is linked in to hundreds of pulblications.
A suite of the latest reports on CCS will be available on the Global CCS Institute website at the end of May 2014. The reports provide unique insights into CCS policy, legal, technological and project updates from leading authorities and often, direct from the projects themselves.
The report summarises the current status of large-scale integrated CCS projects worldwide and finds that the global uptake of CCS has seen significant progress in the US, Canada and China with 21 large-scale projects in operation or construction.
As Stage II of a planned program of CCS activities, China Resources Power is examining the possibility of adding large-scale carbon capture facilities to its Haifeng power plant development in Guangdong province. The proposed capture facilities would be designed to capture around 1 Mtpa of CO2 emissions. Storage site options are under investigation. Planned operation would be in the 2020's.
The World Future Energy Summit (WFES) is the world’s foremost event dedicated to renewable energies, energy efficiency and clean technologies. Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, WFES includes a world-class Conference, an international Exhibition, the Project & Finance Village, the Young Future Energy Leaders program, as well as a number of corporate meetings and concurrent social events.
Platts 8th Annual European Carbon Capture and Storage conference will return early next year to Brussels. Known by the carbon capture and storage community as the preferred meeting place of leading European and international project developers, policy makers, technology providers and observers, we look forward to debating what needs to be done to galvanise action, regain confidence and get European CCS back on track in 2014.
The Global CCS Institute is a sponsor of the 2014 event.
