Institute updates

Join the Underground is part of a new campaign to drive greater awareness of carbon capture and storage (CCS) as a pivotal technology in meeting international (Paris) climate change targets. 

The European Advancing CCS Technologies (ACT) programme has awarded funding to examine the feasibility of the UK’s Acorn Project.

The launch of the Yanchang CCUS facility represents a series of historic "firsts" for China and Yanchang Petroleum.

Our ''Join Underground'' campaign aims to drive greater awareness about the use of CCS technology.

The Institute joined forces with UKCCSRC, SCCS and Dynamic Earth to host a family-friendly event at this year's Edinburgh International Science Festival

Last month, over 100 global dignitaries gathered at the Global CCS Institute/Yanchang Petroleum CCS Symposium near Xi’an (Shaanxi Province). 

The Global CCS Institute’s Americas region held its sixth annual DC Forum on 8 February in Washington, DC.  The theme of the Forum was “Maintaining North American Leadership in Carbon Capture.”

Early this month, the Institute lodged a submission to the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) regarding its Energy Sector Strategy.

Later this month, China’s first carbon capture utilisation and storage facility, Yanchang CCUS, will be formally launched at Xi-an (Shaanxi Province) in China.

On 10 January 2017, NRG Energy announced that the Petra Nova CCS facility is fully operational. The project is a joint venture between NRG Energy and JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration Corp., located in Thompson, Texas, near Houston.
