Institute updates

A webinar presenting the most recent data and analyses drawn from the Global Status of CCS: 2012 report was hosted by the Institute’s General Managers for Projects, Financial and Commercial, Holger Bietz, and Policy and Membership, Barry Jones, on 24 October.

Following the report’s release earlier in the month  at the Institute’s International Members’ Meeting in Calgary, Canada, this webinar provided:

The main feature of Australia’s second National CCS Week was a national conference held 21–26 October in Perth.

Delegates at the National CCS Conference in Perth were today treated to a demonstration by students from St Anne’s Primary School, Harvey of carbon capture and storage (CCS) experiments developed by the CSIRO as part of its CarbonKids program.

The CCS demonstration was arranged to coincide with National CCS Week, along with a creative challenge in which 160 primary and high school students from eight WA schools took part to find new ways to showcase their learning about CCS.

Actively supporting carbon capture and storage (CCS) as part of the suite of low-carbon technologies used to tackle climate change would save electricity customers around the world more than US$3 trillion.

Debunking the myth that CCS is not a reality, the Global CCS Institute has estimated that carbon abatement from eight CCS projects already operating is greater than that achieved by all other energy-related climate efforts combined to date in Australia or the UK.
