Japan’s first large-scale CCS demonstration project continues to provide insights into
CO2 storage and a new carbon recycling facility will explore the commercial use of CO2
China’s policy framework to achieve net-zero emissions by 2060
President Xi Jinping has pledged to cut China’s emissions of carbon dioxide to net-zero
by 2060. What are the policy priorities in order to make this a reality and what are the
practical implication for CCUS scale up?
Projects and policy

The report provides policymakers with options for near-term actions to deploy carbon
capture and storage to meet California’s climate goals
The world needs to build on the growing momentum behind CCS
A major new IEA report shows CCUS can play vital roles of both reducing emissions
and removing carbon from the atmosphere
Technical and Commercial Progress Towards Viable CO2 Storage
A report from The Catalyst Group Resources considers the technical and commercial
