Friday, 4 November 2016: Carbon capture and storage (CCS) takes on even greater significance as a major climate change mitigation technology with the Paris climate change agreement entering into force today.

Friday, 14 October 2016: The Global CCS Institute is intensifying its efforts to communicate the benefits of carbon capture and storage (CCS) as a key climate change mitigator through the appointment of new advocacy and communications positions.

The Global CCS Institute has welcomed the ratification of the Paris Agreement by the European Union as a historic step towards halting global temperature rises.

15 September 2016: The Global CCS Institute applauds the significant one-year milestone achieved at Shell’s Quest carbon capture and storage (CCS) project, capturing and storing one million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) ahead of schedule.

A parliamentary advisory group has published a new report emphasising the critical role that carbon capture and storage (CCS) can play in helping the UK to reduce its carbon emissions.

Andrew Purvis, General Manager for EMEA, the Global CCS Institute said: “These recommendations have the potential to put the UK firmly back on the map as a global leader in CCS development and deployment.”

6 September 2016: The Global CCS Institute has welcomed the ratification of the Paris Agreement by two of the world’s biggest emitters, America and China, as a major step forward towards cutting greenhouse gas emissions, at the 2016 G20 Hangzou Summit.

Effective regulatory enforcement is critical to building public and investor confidence in carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology, according to new research released by HWL Ebsworth today.

The Global CCS Institute is proud to announce its acceptance by the United Nations (UN) to become a member of its Global Compact (UNGC).

A recent study published in Nature has confirmed that the 2050 emission reduction target associated with the long-term climate goal of the Paris Agreement requires massive deployment of carbon capture and storage (CCS).

More than eight billion tonnes of annual carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are being overlooked in a climate debate focused too narrowly on energy policy, according to Brad Page, Chief Executive Officer of the Global CCS Institute.
