Europe

As a representative event of CCS progress in European countries, the first industrial on-site pilot-scale "post-capture" CCS power plant has been operational since September 2008 in the eastern German power plant at Schwarze Pumpe in the hope of answering questions about the technological feasibility, reliability, efficiency and economic efficiency. News and updates on carbon capture and storage in European countries are available in this section.

North America

There is very strong interest in CCS in North America because of their strategic intention to continue and expand using their domestic fossil fuel reserves, especially coal, to reduce foreign oil imports. To better promote the development of CCS in the United States and Canada , the nonprofit North American Carbon Capture & Storage Association (NACCSA) has been set up. News and updates on carbon capture and storage in America and Canada will be available in this section.

 

 
Asia

China and India, as two large Asian countries, have been showing rapid increase in GHG emissions, specifically carbon dioxide emissions. The developed economies have been emphasizing the importance of those two emerging economies to cut carbon emissions. In this section, you can get access to the efforts Asian countries especially China have been making to combat climate change.

 
Rest of the World

News and updates on CCS in the rest of the world are available in this section.







 

 
Global News & Policies

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is an approach to mitigating global warming based on capturing carbon dioxide from large point sources such as fossil fuel power plants and industrial plants and storing it deep underground instead of releasing it into the atmosphere. CCS applied to a modern conventional power plant could reduce CO2 emissions to the atmosphere by approximately 80-90% compared to a plant without CCS. The number and scope of CCS projects are currently expanding at a rapid rate worldwide. You can get access to global news and policies on carbon capture and storage here.
