Publications, Reports & Research
Our publications, reports and research library hosts over 500 specialist reports and research papers on all topics associated with CCS.
The Japanese Knowledge Network (JKN) is a group of over 20 organisations sharing knowledge on topics critical to accelerating carbon capture and storage (CCS) in Japan. A key task of the has been to create a framework for communicating CCS to the general public.
This report presents the findings of the third phase of the 'Development of a CCS Communications Framework for Japan’ project. It is a detailed analysis of the tools and methodologies developed by the network to communicate CCS in an accurate and accessible way. The framework was tested with a group of Japanese citizens who critiqued the information and its delivery for relevance and effectiveness.
This report is authored by Japan NUS Co. Ltd. (JANUS), partnered by Quintessa Japan, and supported by Global CCS Institute.

Developing a CCS communications framework for Japan
1st August 2011
In partnership with the Global CCS Institute, JGC Corporation, Quintessa, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) and McKinley Consulting established and have been running a knowledge sharing network amongst several of the Institute’s Japanese Members since December 2010.
As a part of the network’s initial project, Developing a CCS Communications Framework for Japan, several major Japanese organisations involved with CCS have collaborated to explore:
- how the Institute and its Members can collaborate to synthesise expert knowledge relating to issues identified, which is distributed over a wide variety of disciplines/research areas, into a coherent body of knowledge; and
- how the Institute can distill detailed expert knowledge and present it in a simpler form that can be understood by stakeholders with different levels of scientific/technical literacy.
This report sets out the main outputs of the Network's pilot phase, including:
- establishment of a community of key staff from interested organisations, procedures for facilitating knowledge sharing and required communication tools, i.e., the Institute’s digital platform;
- specification of (possibly Japan-specific) requirements for promotion of CCS understanding;
- compilation of a knowledge base of past communication efforts and an assessment of their effectiveness;
- development of an action plan for improving CCS understanding and stakeholder participation in national dialogue; and
- development of an ‘Argumentation model’ supporting CCS in Japan.

The authors describe a structured qualitative approach to analysing varied kinds of engineering and environmental information from the In Salah geologic carbon sequestration (GCS) project in Algeria. This structured approach supports assessments of the likely performance of CCS systems over operational, monitoring and longer term time-frames. The approach included identifying important features, events and processes (FEPs) that describe the In Salah system and its likely evolution.
