Legal & Regulatory Indicator (CCS-LRI)
Legal & Regulatory Indicator (CCS-LRI)

16th October 2018

Topic(s): Carbon capture, Law and regulation, Policy, Use and storage (CCUS)

Law and regulation remains a critical element of a government’s policy response to support the development and deployment of CCS. Robust legal and regulatory frameworks provide certainty for businesses eager to engage in innovation, and the deployment of CCS.

The CCS-LRI offers a detailed examination and assessment of national legal and regulatory frameworks in 55 countries and examines a range of legal and regulatory factors likely to be critical for the regulation of the technology.

CCS Storage Indicator (CCS-SI)
CCS Storage Indicator (CCS-SI)

16th October 2018

Topic(s): Capacity development, Carbon capture, Law and regulation, Policy, Use and storage (CCUS)

The availability of storage resources is the ultimate pre-requisite for CCS deployment. For global CCS deployment, each country needs to know where, and how much, CO2 can be stored. Each nation needs to characterise, explore and appraise a national portfolio of accessible, commercially-viable storage sites ready for CCS Facilities.

The CCS-SI tracks the development of storage resources for 80 countries. The 2018 scores confirm an overall improvement since the 2015 CCS-SI with twelve nations having mature, or near-mature, storage resources to enable wide-scale CCS.

Organisation(s): Global CCS Institute

Topic(s): Carbon capture, Economics, Law and regulation, Policy, Project financing, Use and storage (CCUS)

Government policy, given effect through law and the allocation of public resources, is critical to achieving climate targets. It plays a material role in determining the return on investment for any climate mitigation technology making confidence in government policy a pre-requisite of investment.

The CCS-PI tracks the development of government policy to accelerate the deployment of CCS as an essential climate mitigation technology in over 100 countries.

The Carbon Capture and Storage Readiness Index 2018: Is the world ready for carbon capture and storage?
The Carbon Capture and Storage Readiness Index 2018: Is the world ready for carbon capture and storage?

16th October 2018

Topic(s): Carbon capture, Economics, Law and regulation, Policy, Use and storage (CCUS)

Collectively, our three Indicator Reports 2018 form a further, criteria-based assessment known as the CCS Readiness Index, or CCS-RI. The 2018 CCS-RI examines over 50 countries using 70 discrete criteria and enables a comparative assessment of countries globally.

Clear from the 2018 assessment is that greater effort is required to deploy CCS at the scale necessary to meet climate change mitigation ambitions.

Industrial CCS

28th June 2016

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

Introduction to industrial carbon capture and storage

Carbon capture and storage, or CCS, is a process used to capture carbon dioxide gas (CO2) that is produced by power stations or other types of industrial facilities. To keep CO2 out of the atmosphere, it is captured from the power plant or industry, transported, and securely stored underground, permanently.

One of the major benefits of CCS as an emissions reduction technology is that it can be applied to different types of CO2 emissions sources, particularly those with very large volumes of emissions, such as power plants and some industrial facilities.

Importantly, CCS is a proven technology that is already in operation around the world, in a number of industrial sectors. These industrial applications are the main focus of this report, and some of them date back as far as the 1970s and 1980s.

Global storage portfolio: a global assessment of the geological CO2 storage resource potential
Global storage portfolio: a global assessment of the geological CO2 storage resource potential

1st March 2016

Topic(s): Carbon capture, CO2 storage, Engineering and project delivery, Use and storage (CCUS)

The primary purpose of the Institute’s Global Storage Portfolio is to collate and summarise published regional assessments of key nations. The Portfolio also summarises key data on a nation’s readiness to host a commercial, large-scale project. For this reason, only proven storage scenarios including deep saline formations (DSF), depleted/depleting oil and gas fields (DGOF) and enhanced oil recovery using CO2 (CO2-EOR) are considered. The analysis has found that:

  • Substantial storage resources are present in most key regions of the world.
  • Reliable methodologies to determine and classify regional storage resources are available and have been widely applied, although there is no formally recognised international standard.
  • The level of resource assessment undertaken and the availability of characterisation data is highly variable across regions.
  • The level of detail a regional resource assessment has progressed as well as the policy, legal and regulatory frameworks are key criteria that can be used to gauge the readiness of any given nation to deploy a CCS project.

The storage resources are grouped into five regions:

  1. Asia-Pacific (fourteen countries)
  2. Americas (five countries)
  3. Middle East (three countries)
  4. Europe and Russia (EU plus three countries)
  5. Africa (four countries).

​The resulting portfolio will enable the reader to rapidly establish a snapshot of a country’s storage resource and potential to deploy a large-scale project.

The Global Status of CCS: 2014
The Global Status of CCS: 2014

5th November 2014

Topic(s): Carbon capture, CO2 capture, CO2 storage, CO2 transport, CO2 utilisation, Use and storage (CCUS)

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.

Legal liability and carbon capture and storage: a comparative perspective
Legal liability and carbon capture and storage: a comparative perspective

1st October 2014

Topic(s): Carbon capture, CO2 storage, Law and regulation, Liability, Policy, Use and storage (CCUS)

Legal liability issues remain critically important for the commercial development of carbon capture and storage (CCS). This co-authored report by Global CCS Institute and University College London largely focusses on the storage aspect of the CCS process. Storage is where the most distinctive liability challenges lie, largely due to the long time-scales involved.

The authors address three types of legal liability:

  1. Civil liability where third parties who have suffered harm seek compensation or a court order.
  2. Administrative liability where authorities are given powers to serve some form of enforcement or clean-up order.
  3. Emissions trading liability where an emissions trading regime provides a benefit for CO2 storage and an accounting mechanism is in place should there be subsequent leakage.
