Institute updates

The Rotterdam Climate Initiative (RCI) is in the process of realising CCS in the Rotterdam area, the Netherlands. CCS activities in Rotterdam commenced in 2006 and until now, more than 20 companies cooperated to provide feasibility level engineering studies for CO2 capture projects and a CCS common infrastructure network.

On 5 September 2011, the Global CCS Institute launched its office in Tokyo, Japan, at an event held at the ANA Intercontinental Hotel in Tokyo. The launch was held to coincide with the 20th JCOAL Clean Coal Conference, a two-day conference that brings together the low-carbon technology development community from Japan and around the world.
