Leaders - CCUS in EMEA
New and old CCS projects in Europe: What’s different this time?

In comparison to previous waves of projects, the design and focus of new projects as well as the policy environment has changed, making the case for CCS as a key component in reaching the EUs climate objectives, says a paper from the International Association of Oil & Gas Producers.  

Aker Solutions’ carbon capture technology approved by DNV GL
Aker Solutions is working together with Norcem HeidelbergCement to realise the
world's first commercial-scale carbon capture facility for use in cement production

Projects and policy
Will our future world be NICE?
Philippe Fonta, Founder and CEO of SCRUM-consult, argues that we should scale up
CCUS under a common platform, the New International Carbon Economy (NICE), that
rebrands CO2 as a fuel rather than a waste product
Global CCS Institute – how to scale up the CCS market
The Global CCS Institute has been evaluating what factors are proving most helpful
getting projects into operation, and how to increase the survival rate of planned
projects. By Karl Jeffery
CCUS projects gain funding from UK Research and Innovation
A range of decarbonisation projects have attracted seed funding from UK Research and

CO2 measurement, monitoring and verification
CO2CRC: reliably validating CO2 plume migration models in the subsurface
The Otway Stage 2C project enabled detection of a 15,000 tonne plume of injected CO2
as it grew and stabilised deep in the subsurface using a range of seismic technologies
Aquistore demonstrates safe and cost-effective CO2 storage
Aquistore is an on-going MMV project to demonstrate that storing CO2 3.4km
underground in a brine and sandstone water formation is a safe, workable solution
TÜV SÜD - the need to measure carbon dioxide flows accurately
LAUNCH is a three-year, EU-funded project aimed at accelerating the implementation of
CO2 capture across industry and enabling the development of novel solvents
Capture and utilisation
On Mars or Earth, biohybrid can turn CO2 into useful products
