Test centers and other initiatives

A significant development in capture technology development in the past ten years has been the construction of capture test centres, especially in North America and Europe. These centres have played a key role in the advancement of capture technology. Numerous technology providers have undertaken capture system testing at the scale of the test centres to generate data to support larger scale-up.

There have also been a significant number of initiatives undertaken in the past decade that have helped (or will help) support the development and deployment of CCS. These initiatives include scoping and techno-economic studies that have not themselves involved a significant amount of operational experience (but may have built on previous experiences). It also includes programs that are not easily allocated into the other ‘project’ classification – for example, studies that have involved the controlled release of small amounts of CO2 to test for environmental impacts and recommendation for improving monitoring systems.

This is not meant to be an exhaustive listing, rather to provide a sense of the significant amount of work on broader CCS development undertaken outside the more popularly quoted larger scale and pilot scale 'projects'.
