Global technology roadmap for CCS in industry. Sectoral assessment: CO2 enhanced oil recovery

Organisation: Advanced Resources International, Inc., United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO)

The United Nations Industrial Development Organization and the International Energy Agency are developing a Global Technology Roadmap for CCS in Industry (the Roadmap), due to be released mid–year. The project has been sponsored by the Global CCS Institute and the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy.

The Roadmap will be a valuable resource to stakeholders, including policy makers and regulators across the globe. Targeted at policymakers, the Roadmap will be a high-level assessment of the key actions and milestones that need to be undertaken to develop CCS in industry.

The following in-depth, technical sectoral assessments have been undertaken to inform the direction of the Roadmap:

  • biomass;
  • high-purity;
  • iron and steel;
  • refineries;
  • cement; and
  • enhanced oil recovery.
