Topic(s): Global status report
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) continues to make significant progress around the world against a backdrop of greater climate action from countries and private companies. The Global Status of CCS 2021 demonstrates the critical role of CCS as nations and industry accelerate to net-zero.
The report provides detailed analyses of the global project pipeline, international policy, finance, and emerging trends. In addition, four regional overviews highlight the rapid development of CCS across North America, Asia Pacific, Europe and nearby regions, and the Gulf Cooperation Council states.
The Global Status of CCS report shows that global storage capacity has increased 32% in the last year alone. There are now 135 commercial CCS facilities in the project pipeline (27 are fully operational) from a diverse range of sectors including cement, steel, hydrogen, power generation and direct air capture.
