Status of Carbon Capture 2017: Will Technology and Market Forces Drive a Surge in New CCS Projects?

Tuesday, 28 November 2017 - 9:30am to 11:00am
Event location: 
Washington, D.C.
Event type: 



The past year saw the successful startup of two new, large-scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) facilities, while others in Canada, China, and Australia moved closer to completion. For CCS to play a major role in meeting the Paris Agreement's two-degree warming limit, adoption of CCS must accelerate in the next decade.

The 2017 Status of CCS highlights key determining factors for the role of CCS in meeting these climate targets. Innovative technologies, improving markets for CO2 utilization, and reducing industrial emissions with CCS are all positive trends, but government policies at the federal, state, and local levels—along with international cooperation—remain critical for the path forward.

Jeff Erikson, General Manager at the Global CCS Institute, will present the report, followed by a panel discussion with Samantha McCulloch (Energy Analyst, International Energy Agency) and Eric Redman (CEO, Thunderbolt Energy). Sarah Ladislaw, Director and Senior Fellow with the CSIS Energy & National Security Program, will moderate.
