CCS Talks: What are the drivers of current CCS project development?

25th June 2020

Location(s): Webinar, Type(s): webinar

June 25, 2020 - 11:00 (Washington) / 16:00 (London) / 17:00 (Brussels) 


On June 8, The Global CCS Institute added 10 CCS facilities to its global CCS facility database, bringing the total number of CCS facilities in various stages of development to 59 with a capture capacity of more than 127 million tonnes per annum (mtpa). Together with the newly operational Alberta Carbon Trunk Line, there are now 21 facilities in operation, three under construction, and 35 in various stages of development.

During this online event  CCS experts and project proponents will discuss and provide insights into the projects and the trends driving CCS development:

  • Where are these projects are located?
  • Who are their sponsors?
  • What type of capture and storage projects are they?
  • When will they be deployed?
  • And, most importantly – Why are they happening now?
