CCS pipeline grows by 10 large-scale facilities globally
8th June 2020
On June 8, the Global CCS Institute added 10 carbon capture and storage (CCS) facilities to our global database co2re.co, 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). There are now 21 facilities in operation, three under construction, and 35 in various stages of development.
The facilities added continue trends in CCS deployment that include innovative applications such as natural gas power, negative emissions and cement, as well as stacked and offshore geologic storage. Fuelled by targeted incentives and sustained government support the US adds nine facilities, while the UK adds one facility.
