Pilot and demonstration projects
There are a considerable number of lesser-scale projects around the world that are either not of a sufficient scale to be considered as large-scale projects or are not fully integrated (refer to www.globalccsinstitute.com/projects/large-scale-ccs-projects-definitions for the definition of what constitutes a large-scale integrated CCS project). These projects have provided valuable information to assist in the design and development of large-scale CO2 capture plants, to advance the understanding of the behaviour of CO2 in the subsurface, and to contribute to public outreach activities.
Many of these ‘projects’ had a defined terms of reference and have been completed. A number continue to operate. Objectives common to many of these lesser-scale projects include demonstration of the technical feasibility of a particular technology and the gaining of operational experience and economic information.
Many of the pilot capture activities are / were supported by capture technology vendors, often with co-funding from public sources, in order to test capture technologies at a scale relevant to industry, including how a particular capture system can be best integrated into the host facility.
