New IPCC report calls for drastic upscaling of climate ambition
 
Leaders - CCS in Asia
 
Carbon capture making strides in India
Carbon capture, utilisation and storage is making strides in India and Indonesia, as we
learned in the CCUS event which Indian Institute of Technology Department of Earth
Sciences ran in Mumbai on October 11-12, together with Carbon Capture Journal
 
Carbon capture projects in Asia
Including ONGC and NTPC exploring CCS with CO2 + EOR; Essar Oil looking at CO2
injected into coal bed methane in the Cambey Basin; and Indonesia setting up a
‘centre of excellence’ for CCUS
 
Financial aspects of CCUS
We heard ideas from the Asian Development Bank and International Energy Agency
about where CCS financials seem to be working so far – and ADB’s work, partly
funded by the UK government, to set up CCS ‘centres of excellence’ around Asia
 
MN Dastur – gasification “better pathway to CCS in India”
For India to implement CCS, it may be better to look at developing entirely new
industries around gasified coal, rather than retrofit CCS on its coal power stations
 
Projects and policy
 
EU failing with commercial deployment of carbon capture say Auditors
EU action to support carbon capture and storage and innovative renewables has not
succeeded, according to a new report from the European Court of Auditors
 
With urgent action UK could achieve net zero emissions by 2050
A joint report by the Royal Academy of Engineering and Royal Society presents an
ambitious plan for how the UK can lead the way in deploying greenhouse gas removal
(GGR) technologies to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050
 
Negative emissions technologies must play significant role
To achieve goals for climate and economic growth, negative emissions technologies
will need to play a significant role in mitigating climate change
 
Stanford study highlights way to coax emissions back into oil reservoirs
A new analysis looks at what it would take for oil companies to start pumping millions
of tons of carbon dioxide into their wells to boost crude production
 
Accelerating breakthrough innovation in CCUS mission innovation report
A workshop hostedd by the U.S. and Saudi Arabia brought together 260 of the world’s
leading CCUS experts from academia and industry to evaluate the most promising
research and development avenues
 
Update on CCS in Europe – report from ZEP meeting
We got an update on developments with CCS in Europe at the Brussels meeting in
Sept 26 of the European Zero Emission Technology and Innovation Platform (ZEP) .
 
UKCCSRC meeting - supporting CCUS implementation through innovation
The UKCCSRC autumn conference reviewed the UK Cost Challenge Task Force (CCTF)
report and highlighted the latest research
 
Capture and utilisation
 
Catalyst opens way to CO2 capture in conversion of coal to liquid fuels
Researchers from the National Institute of Clean-and-Low-Carbon Energy in Beijing
and Eindhoven University of Technology have developed iron-based catalysts that
substantially reduce operating costs for CO2 capture in coal to liquids
 
MIT researchers develop carbon capturing battery
The new lithium-based battery could capture and store CO2 as a solid carbonate
 
Transport and storage
 
U.S. carbon capture network could double global CO2 storage
The United States could as much as double the amount of carbon dioxide emissions
currently captured and stored worldwide within the next six years, according to an
analysis by Princeton University researchers
