The 2019 Global Status of CCS report documents important milestones for CCS over the past 12 months, its status across the world and the key opportunities and benefits the technology presents.

The report provides detailed information on, and analyses of, the global CCS facility pipeline, policy, CO2 storage and the legal and regulatory environment. In addition, four regional updates and a CCS Technology section further demonstrate global development and the versatility of CCS across a variety of applications and industry sectors.

CCS Facilities around the world

There are now 51 large-scale CCS facilities globally. These include 19 in operation, four under construction, and 28 in various stages of development. Of all the facilities in operation, 17 are in the industrial sector and two in power.

CCS Facilities around the world

The Americas continue to lead the way with 24 large-scale CCS facilities in operation and various stages of development, followed by 12 in Europe, 12 in Asia Pacific, three in the Middle East.

Status of CO2 Capture and Storage

The total capture and storage capacity of these large-scale CCS facilities at all stages of development has risen by 34 per cent since 2017, which equals 97.5 million tonnes per annum of CO2.

Status of CO2 Capture and Storage

To date, more than 260 million tonnes of anthropogenic CO2 has been safely captured and permanently stored globally.

CCS Hubs and Clusters

The next wave of CCS facilities will most likely be characterised by hubs and clusters. Instead of relying on a single sink, single source model, hubs and clusters aggregate emissions from numerous industrial and power plants. This model will help reduce operational and commercial risks and lead to lower costs through economies of scale.

Over the past year the global development and deployment of CCS continued to gather pace. In 2019, the number of large-scale CCS facilities increased to 51.

Of these 19 are operating, four are under construction, 10 are in advanced development using a dedicated front end engineering design (FEED) approach and 18 are in early development.

The 2019 report also features commentary and contributions from a wide range of leaders and influencers.

Our CCS Ambassadors draw on their expertise and eminence from across climate change, energy, academia, polar exploration, finance and CCS to collectively voice their support for the technology. The report also features a variety of detailed maps, charts, figures and infographics to supplement the written information and analyses.
