Publications, Reports & Research
Our publications, reports and research library hosts over 500 specialist reports and research papers on all topics associated with CCS.
The Global CCS Institute is pleased to announce the release of our Global Status of CCS: 2014 report.
The report provides a detailed overview of the current status of large-scale CCS projects worldwide, finding that 2014 has been a pivotal year for CCS, which is now a reality in the power industry.
For the first time, the report introduces and provides links to project descriptions for around 40 lesser scale ‘notable’ CCS projects. The 2014 report focuses on a number of ‘notable’ projects in Japan.
The Global Status of CCS: 2014 report provides a comprehensive overview of global and regional developments in CCS and what is required to support global climate mitigation efforts. Providing a number of key recommendations for decision makers, The Global Status of CCS: 2014 report is an important reference guide for industry, government, research bodies and the broader community.
The Global Status of CCS: 2014 Summary Report provides an executive overview of the key findings and recommendations contained in the Institute’s Global Status of CCS: 2014 report.
The Supplementary Information presentation package includes chart materials not included in the Global Status of CCS: 2014 report. This material provides additional detail on the status of large-scale CCS projects globally. When used in conjunction with previous status reports, it provides researchers with access to the world’s most comprehensive historical data set on large-scale CCS projects.
Role of enhanced oil recovery in accelerating the deployment of carbon capture and sequestration
23rd July 2010
Topic(s): CO2 utilisation
On July 23, 2010, the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI) and the Bureau of Economic Geology at the University of Texas (UT-BEG) co-hosted a symposium on the Role of Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) in Accelerating the Deployment of Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS). The motivation for the symposium lies with the convergence of two national energy priorities: enhancement of domestic oil production through increased tertiary recovery; establishment of large-scale CCS as an enabler for continued coal use in a future carbon-constrained world. These security and environmental goals can both be advanced by utilizing the carbon dioxide (CO2) captured from coal (and natural gas) combustion for EOR, but many questions remain about the efficacy and implementation of such a program at large scale. The symposium aimed to lay out the issues and to explore what might be an appropriate government role.
