Institute updates

The UK Government has released a suite of 86 Key Knowledge Deliverables developed under the 2013/2014 Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) contracts covering the Peterhead and White Rose CCS projects.

The Global CCS Institute was a key participating partner at the mid-year Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF) meetings held in London from 27-30 June 2016.

On 30 June, Air Products and Chemicals, Inc. successfully captured its 3 millionth metric tonne of carbon dioxide (CO2) from two steam methane reformers (SMRs) located within the Valero Energy refinery at Port Arthur, Texas.

The Global CCS Institute hosted a 31 May parallel event to the Clean Energy Ministerial 7 (CEM7) in San Francisco to explore how carbon management technologies can bolster renewable energy adoption and help deliver on the climate goals set out in the Paris agreement.

Ron Munson, the Institute’s Principal Manager – Carbon Capture chaired a carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) symposium at the 22-25 May TechConnect World Innovation and Conference Expo in National Harbor, MD. 

The two-day CCUS workshop held in Guangzhou, China on 5-6 May 2016 was concluded with a significant message that China may become the global leader in CCS development.

Like the international results of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Fifth Assessment Synthesis Report (2014) and the International Energy Agency’s World Energy Outlook Special Report on Energy and Climate Change (2015), the ETI’s work has consistently shown the huge financial benefits of a successful CCS sector within a low-carbon energy future. 

The Global CCS Institute joined many prominent Australian and international organisations in sponsoring the 3rd Australian Emissions Reduction Summit in Melbourne on 3 and 4 May.

Friday April 22, 2016, will become a significant day marked in history. On this day in New York, representatives of 170 countries signed the Paris Agreement on climate change – the largest number of countries to sign an international agreement in one day.

It’s not enough.

The Asia-Pacific Members' Meeting and CCS Forum is an annual event hosted by the Global CCS Institute. This year we held our event on 11 April at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. A site visit to the Otway CCS Project was held on 12 April.
