Brazilian atlas of CO2 capture and geological storage
Brazilian atlas of CO2 capture and geological storage

28th April 2015

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

The publication provides a general overview of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology, then zooms into the Brazilian context. Brazil has an overall favorable situation regarding the potential for CO2 geological storage - this Atlas maps out the sources of CO2 emissions and the potential storage locations.  A selection of case studies are included that describe current CCS activities within Brazil.

The production of this Atlas was sponsored by the Global CCS Institute and represents the consolidation of nearly a decade of research and data gathering and compilation, carried out by a large number of professionals working in the CCS field in Brazil since 2007.

CCS in the Baltic Sea Region – Bastor 2. Work package 4: legal and fiscal aspects
CCS in the Baltic Sea Region – Bastor 2. Work package 4: legal and fiscal aspects

14th April 2015

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

This report provides an analysis of the current and suggested legal framework that could regulate CCS activities in Sweden and the wider Baltic Sea region. The evolution of a well-functioning legal framework for regional CCS operations is expected to be time consuming, with the early identification of potential hurdles critical to all stakeholders.

David Langlet was commissioned by Elforsk to analyse legal and fiscal aspects of CCS in the Baltic Sea region. The study was carried out jointly with Nils Rydberg who brought expertise on the CCS value chain and its actors. This report is part of the project Bastor2 (Baltic Storage of CO2), with the overriding objective to assess the opportunities and conditions for CO2 sequestration in the Baltic Sea Area. The project, which ran from June 2012 through September 2014, was financed by the Swedish Energy Agency, the Global CCS Institute and a number of Swedish industrial and energy companies.

CCS in the Baltic Sea Region – Bastor 2. Work package 3: social aspects for Baltic Sea storage of carbon dioxide

13th April 2015

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

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) has been highlighted in many countries and regions as a vital measure needed to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions in the fight against climate change. The technical and commercial development has been impeded by projects and project plans facing opposition by different groups. Against this background, this report describes the results of a study, within the BASTOR2 project, analyzing which social factors are likely to influence the plans for a proposed Baltic Sea storage project.

As there are not yet any CO2 storage projects in the Baltic region, the analysis for this report has been carried out on three Swedish case-studies of other energy related projects in the Baltic Sea. The social research literature consistently points to local and regional contexts as having a large influence on the perceptions and acceptance of CCS projects. The report consequently highlights a number of contexts, or conditions, that are identified as important factors in how the case-studies have been perceived and accepted or opposed in the local and national context.

CCS in the Baltic Sea Region – Bastor 2. Work package 2: knowledge about environmental impact

2nd April 2015

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

The objective of this study is to document current knowledge, hazards and risks on environmental impacts in a possible future CCS project in the offshore Baltic Sea Area. Another purpose is to also present a tentative EIA work plan for a field trial project as scoped out in Chapter 2. Further, the intention is to add new knowledge, if possible, to what is already known or applicable to CCS activities in the offshore Baltic Sea Area.

Yggdrasil Miljömanagement AB, together with panaware ab, were commissioned by Elforsk AB to document current knowledge about environmental impacts in the light of a possible CCS field trial project in the offshore Baltic Sea Area. This report is part of the project Bastor2 (Baltic Storage of CO2), with the overriding objective to assess the opportunities and conditions for CO2 sequestration in the region. The project, which ran from June 2012 through September 2014, was financed by the Swedish Energy Agency and the Global CCS Institute in collaboration with a number of Swedish industrial and energy companies.

CO2 capture and storage in Portugal: a bridge to a low carbon economy
CO2 capture and storage in Portugal: a bridge to a low carbon economy

1st April 2015

Topic(s): Economics, Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 capture, CO2 storage

This report evaluates the role the CCS technology could play in the Portuguese energy and industry system as a mitigation option to achieve deep GHG emissions reductions. The cost effectiveness of its deployment, and the risks and additional benefits it may provide for economic development are also analysed.

The partners of the CCS-PT: Perspectives for capture and sequestration of CO2 in Portugal project authored this report: 

  • CENSE Research Group, FCT - Universidade Nova de Lisboa
  • CGE Research Group, Universidade de Évora
  • Laboratório Nacional de Energia e Geologia
  • REN – Rede Eléctrica Nacional, S.A.
  • Bellona Foundation

The Global CCS Institute supplied financial and technical contributions.

Sumário (Portuguese Summary)

Global CCS Institute submission to: the European Commission’s consultation on revision of the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) Directive
Global CCS Institute submission to: the European Commission’s consultation on revision of the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) Directive

31st March 2015

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

The European Council has concluded that 400 million allowances in the period 2021 to 2030 should be dedicated under the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) to setting up an innovation fund to support demonstration projects of carbon capture and storage (CCS), in addition to other low carbon technologies.

To make this fund operational, a legal basis has to be created in the EU ETS Directive. In this submission the Global CCS Institute sets out its views on the innovation fund in response to the European Commission’s request for stakeholders to participate in the public consultation on the revision of the ETS Directive (established by Directive 2003/87/EC).
