Collaboration with Projects
The Global CCS Institute works collaboratively with its Members, CCS projects, governments and stakeholders across the world to ensure that CCS is recognised as:
- technically feasible;
- able to make a significant contribution towards reducing the world’s greenhouse gas emissions; and
- an essential element in the portfolio of climate change mitigation technologies.
Project collaboration approach
The Institute monitors and enhances the global status of CCS development in three ways.
1. Collecting data on CCS projects around the world:
- interactive map of large-scale integrated CCS projects;
- data on the status of large-scale integrated CCS projects; and
- interactive charts of large-scale integrated CCS projects by year, project stage and region.
2. Analysing project data and publishing findings in reports on the global status of CCS:
- Global Status of CCS: 2013 report
- Global Status of CCS: 2012 report
- Global Status of CCS: 2011 report
- December 2011, March 2012, June 2012, January 2013 and February 2014 updates on the global status of CCS projects;
- Global Status of CCS: 2010 report;
- Strategic Analysis of the Global Status of Carbon Capture & Storage: 2009; and
- key reports, publications and community content about the status of CCS.
3. Collaborating with projects and other stakeholders to generate reports and publications, and share practical project insights and experience:
- key reports and publications;
- Institute-hosted webinars and interviews; and
- information about project collaboration activities and support.
Direct project support
The Institute directly supports CCS projects, and organisations working with projects to generate knowledge and understanding, thus helping to address key barriers to broad CCS deployment.
The Institute supports the following project activities within its current portfolio:
- Storage and shipping studies – Rotterdam CCS Network Project, Rotterdam, Netherlands;
- Front-end engineering and design studies – Tenaska Trailblazer Energy Center, Texas, USA;
- Development studies – Entergy Nelson 6 Carbon Capture & Sequestration Project, Louisiana, USA;
- Front-end engineering and design studies – TransAlta Project Pioneer, Alberta, Canada;
- Front-end engineering and design studies – AEP Mountaineer 235-MWe CO2 Capture and Storage Project, West Virginia, USA;
- Feasibility studies – Romanian CCS Demo Project (Getica), Oltenia, Romania;
- Front-end engineering and design studies, and execution planning – Rotterdam Opslag en Afvang Demo (ROAD), Rotterdam, Netherlands;
- CCS hub development studies –The South West Geosequestration Hub Project, Collie, Western Australia, Australia;
- Commercial planning and measurement, monitoring and verification (MMV) studies – CarbonNet Project, Victoria, Australia;
- CO2 Shuttle Shipping Study – Chiyoda Corporation, Tokyo, Japan;
- Amine emissions study – CSIRO, Australia;
- Process validation modelling – Loy Yang, Victoria, Australia;
- Community communication on key risks of CCS Projects – Indigo Research Ltd, UK; and
