Norway Full Chain CCS is in advanced development for the possible capture of approximately 0.8 Mtpa of CO2 by 2023-2024. Capture CO2 studies are being undertaken by two proponents involved in cement production and a waste-to-energy recovery plant, both in southern Norway. The offshore Smeaheia area has been evaluated as the optimal storage site and may involve a combined ship and pipeline transportation system.

Sinopec Eastern China CCS is evaluating the potential to capture around 0.5 Mtpa of CO2 from a synthetic ammonia facility and a coal to hydrogen facility in Jiangsu Province, China. It is anticipated that operations may begin around the 2020 timeframe. The captured CO2 would be transported by pipeline to oil fields operated by Sinopec affiliates for enhanced oil recovery.

2016 Asia Pacific CCS Forum

You are invited to attend the 2016 Asia Pacific CCS Forum in Melbourne, Australia.

This year’s forum will examine current CCS policy, legal and investment developments, consider the application of CCS research within Australia, ask how we can strengthen the CCS narrative and, will identify short and medium term goals for CCS in Australia. Guests are also invited to join a networking event following the Forum.

The Teesside Collective involves a cluster of leading energy-intensive companies that are examining the opportunity to build one of Europe’s first CCS equipped industrial zones in Tees Valley, UK. The first phase of the development may begin operations in the mid-2020s, with an initial CO2 capture capacity of approximately 0.8 Mtpa on average, that could grow up to 10 Mtpa once the network is proven and fully operational. The captured CO2 would be transported via pipeline to an offshore site in the North Sea for dedicated geological storage. 

The European CCS Demonstration Project Network shared the latest activities and learnings from the CCS demonstration projects at a knowledge sharing event hosted by CIUDEN and held in the Technology Development Centre for CO2 capture, located in Cubillos del Sil in the vicinity of Ponf

Australia Members’ Meeting, 3 June

View the agenda

On 15 May 2014 the Global CCS Institute, Atlantic Council and Environmental Nongovernmental Organization (ENGO) Network hosted a Capitol Hill CCS Facts and Policy Forum in Washington DC.

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.
