Carbon Capture and Storage network in Victoria’s Gippsland region
Validating monitoring technologies in Australia’s near shore environment
CO2CRC led the deployment of equipment funded by the Australian Government in a
network defined as the Gippsland Monitoring Network (GipNet) 
Technology Investment Roadmap signals core role for CCS
The release of the Technology Investment Roadmap Discussion Paper was welcomed
by the Global CCS Institute as another positive step forward for CCS in Australia
Growing momentum for CCUS in Australia
Australia is well positioned to play a leadership role in further development and
deployment of CCUC technologies
Minimising the environmental impact of CO2 storage monitoring
Silixa’s monitoring with fibre-optic cables at the CO2CRC Otway project is advancing
the development of technically and environmentally safe solutions for CO2 storage
Decarbonising steel production
CO2CRC recently concluded a 12-month study to assess innovative and emerging
technologies to reduce emissions from Australian based integrated steel mills
Projects and policy
Reducing the cost of CCS – Global CCS Institute webinar report
The Global CCS Institute held a webinar on June 8 “The Technology Cost Curve”,
looking at how the cost of CCS can be reduced to around $35 - $50 a tonne CO2,
through a mixture of experience, bigger scale, and new technology. By Karl Jeffery 
Study shows world can capture enough CO2 to meet targets
The world is currently on track to fulfil scenarios on diverting atmospheric CO2 to
underground reservoirs, according to a new study by Imperial
Study shows hydrological limits in CCS
Research at Berkeley College of Chemistry shows water use is an important
consideration in the implementation of Carbon Capture and Storage
Equinor, Shell and Total invest in Northern Lights
Following the investment decision, the partners intend to establish a joint venture
company. The initial investments will total almost NOK 6.9 billion
Capture and utilisation
Australian researchers set record for CO2 capture
Researchers from Monash University and the CSIRO have set a record for carbon dioxide
capture using Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs)
Cheap nanoparticle catalyst for CO2 to syngas conversion
Making catalysts to convert waste CO2 into useful industrial products has been expensive
and complicated - until now. UNSW engineers show it’s as easy as playing with Lego
Membranes to reduce industrial CO2 emissions
Researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the University of Tennessee have
demonstrated a novel fabrication method for affordable gas membranes
Testing piperazine solvent for capturing CO2 from flue gas
The CO2 Capture Project presents its work in the application of the piperazine solvent
with advanced stripper technology to achieve a high capture rate in low-CO2 flue gas
Transport and storage
First independent catalogue of CO2 storage resource for CCUS
The CO2 Storage Resource Catalogue is a pioneering initiative to accelerate the
deployment of CCUS by supporting the consistent evaluation of storage resources
