DOE-NETL Carbon Capture and Storage Database

The DOE Carbon capture and storage database shows 192 active and proposed projects. Eight projects are already capturing and storing CO2, including two in the United States.

The G-8 goal is launch of 20 Carbon capture and storage (CCS) demonstrations by 2010

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects are being implemented worldwide, at a pace to meet an international goal of 20 demonstrations by 2010, according to a new Energy Department database.

The carbon capture and storage database, a project of the Office of Fossil Energy's (FE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), launches with 192 proposed and active CCS projects worldwide. The projects are located in 20 countries across five continents. The 192 projects globally include 38 capture, 46 storage, and 108 for capture and storage.

The database provides information about the efforts of various industries, public groups, and governments to develop and deploy CCS technology, a critical component in global efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It lists technologies being developed for capture, testing sites for CO2 storage, and estimations of costs and anticipated dates of project completion, and uses Google Earth to illustrate the location of projects and provide a link to further information on each.

The Energy Department supports dozens of CCS projects through its Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnerships (RCSP) program, the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum, and other global collaborations.

FE and NETL support international projects in Canada, China, Germany, Australia, Algeria, and Norway. Hundreds of organizations—including government agencies, universities, and the private sector—are involved in global CCS efforts.

While most of the projects are still in the planning and development stage, or have just recently been proposed, eight are actively capturing and injecting CO2:

  • SECARB Cranfield, United States (SECARB info)
  • In Salah Gas Storage Project, Algeria
  • CRUST Project – K12-B Test, The Netherlands
  • Sleipner Project, Norway
  • Snøhvit Field LNG and CO2 Storage Project, Norway
  • Zama Field, Canada
  • Weyburn-Midale, Canada
  • Mountaineer CCS Project, United States

Carbon Capture and Storage Technologies

CCS is a group of technologies for capturing and compressing the carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted by power plants or industrial sites; transporting it; and injecting it into suitable permanent storage sites, such as deep underground formations. It has been increasingly recognized by scientists and nations worldwide as an effective way to both reduce CO2 emissions from existing sources and help avoid future emissions, making it part of a portfolio response to meet atmospheric carbon dioxide reduction goals.

At its 2008 meeting in Japan, the G-8 — of which the United States is a part — adopted a goal recommended by the International Energy Agency to launch 20 large-scale CCS demonstration projects globally by 2010, with a further goal of deploying these technologies by 2020. Worldwide efforts to fund and establish CCS projects in general have accelerated, and the new database shows a recent increase in projects cost-shared by the electric power industry.
