Strategic analysis of the global status of carbon capture and storage. Report 3: country studies Japan
Strategic analysis of the global status of carbon capture and storage. Report 3: country studies Japan

31st March 2009

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS)

Current government efforts to revise the Japanese legal system to facilitate CCS projects, and financial support for research, development and demonstration projects in the area of CCS are also a result of Japan’s commitment to CCS. The Government's Action Plan for Building a Low Carbon Society, released in 2008, aims to:

  • reduce the costs of CO2 separation and capture to around 2000 yen per tonne by 2015;
  • reduce the costs of CO2 separation and capture to around 1000 yen per tonne by 2020;
  • begin a large-scale CCS project early in 2009; and
  • work toward making CCS projects and technology accessible and possible to implement on a commercial scale by 2020.

This is to be done through, amongst other things, improving monitoring and environmental impact assessment capabilities and revision of legislation and regulations as required.

Strategic analysis of the global status of carbon capture and storage. Report 3: country studies Mexico

31st March 2009

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS)

The National Strategy issued in 2007 considers CCS projects as priority field of research, due to their utility for CO2 capture potential, as well as the opportunity they present the state owned oil producing company, PEMEX. CCS projects may be feasible for the oil field of Cantarell and other declining oilfields to increase oil recovery.

Nonetheless, the National Strategy concludes that these projects are very costly. This may, however, be compensated by financing from CDM projects. The National Strategy also considers that further research is required regarding long-term environmental effects.

While there are is no CCS specific legislation or regulation, existing laws may be applicable to particular CCS activities. These laws may also provide guidance on the future approach taken by the Government in implementing a regulatory framework for CCS activities.

Best practices for: monitoring, verification, and accounting of CO2 stored in deep geologic formations
Best practices for: monitoring, verification, and accounting of CO2 stored in deep geologic formations

1st January 2009

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS)

This document was developed by the US Dept. of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory for regulatory organisations, project developers, and national and state policymakers to increase awareness of existing and developing monitoring, verification, and accounting (MVA) techniques used during carbon sequestration.

Carbon capture and storage in the CDM
Carbon capture and storage in the CDM

1st December 2007

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS)

The possible inclusion of CCS projects under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) raises a number of issues, including how to deal with potential leaks of CO2 and associated permanence and liability issues, what an appropriate project boundary is, how to deal with CDM-“leakage” (i.e. emissions resulting from the project activity beyond its boundaries) and what the possible impact of including CCS would be on the broad CDM  portfolio. This paper assesses these issues.

Carbon capture and storage at Mongstad
Carbon capture and storage at Mongstad

1st August 2007

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS)

This project, the importance of which the government compared to landing on the moon, has been heavily debated in recent months. Removing and storing the carbon dioxide (CO2) from gas-fired power plants represents a much cleaner way to produce electricity and make use of fossil fuels. This is a new and costly technology. There is a lot of uncertainty associated with these costs, and as it turns out – the Mongstad project will not be in the lower range of these costs.

Bellona's comments on carbon dioxide capture and storage under the Clean Development Mechanism
Bellona's comments on carbon dioxide capture and storage under the Clean Development Mechanism

31st May 2007

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS)

There is considerable agreement among experts that Carbon dioxide Capture and Storage (CCS) is a vital mitigation alternative for the coming decades. The potential of such technologies to reduce CO2 emissions from fossil fuel power generation is substantial. In addition, a transfer of CCS technologies from industrialised to developing countries can help ensure a more sustainable economic development.

Storing CO2 under the North Sea Basin: A key solution for combating climate change
Storing CO2 under the North Sea Basin: A key solution for combating climate change

1st January 2007

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS)

This report represents the first deliverable of the North Sea Basin Task Force, which Norway and the UK established in November 2005 to work together on issues surrounding the transport and storage of CO2 beneath the North Sea. The North Sea represents the best geological opportunity for storing our CO2 emissions away from the atmosphere for both the UK and Norway. On 30 November 2005, Minister Enoksen of Norway and Minister Wicks of the UK agreed to establish a North Sea Basin Task Force, composed of public and private bodies from countries on the rim of the North Sea. Its purpose: to develop common principles for managing and regulating the transport, injection and permanent storage of CO2 in the North Sea sub-seabed.

Capturing the ‘C’ in climate change: CO2 capture and storage
Capturing the ‘C’ in climate change: CO2 capture and storage

1st January 2007

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS)

This article attempts to provide an update on recent developments in carbon capture and storage (CCS), with particular emphasis on the legal and regulatory provisions that will need to be in place under international, EU and UK law to accommodate the new technology and the risks of storing CO2 underground.  This involves looking at how some of the recent developments link to the London Convention and its protocol, OSPAR, the UNFCCC and the Kyoto Protocol, and how the UK Government might proceed with regulating and licensing CCS in the United Kingdom.

The future of coal in a greenhouse gas constrained world
The future of coal in a greenhouse gas constrained world

1st January 2006

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS)

An interdisciplinary group of MIT faculty and research staff have participated in a study to assess the contribution coal can make to the growing world energy demand during a period of increasing concern about global climate change. The study looks out to the year 2050 and assesses technologies and policies we should pursue in the short-term so that we can utilize coal in the longer-term and reduce its associated CO2 emissions by at least 1 GtC. This paper summarizes the findings from three key components of the study: future coal use, coal conversion technologies, and CO2 sequestration. The full report will be available over the internet in summer of 2006.
