Leaders - CCUS in Australia

Carbon Capture absorbent development at CSIRO Energy
CSIRO has been researching amine absorbent technology for over fifteen years - here we chart its progress through to large scale and long-term pilot testing and commercial viability
 
Australia proposes inclusion of CCS in Carbon Credits Market
The proposed method will enable CCS projects which capture and permanently store
greenhouse gases underground to generate Australian carbon credit units
 
Australia invests $50 million in six carbon capture projects
The projects received funding to accelerate the development of the technology, sharing
$50 million from the Carbon Capture, Use and Storage Development Fund
 
Santos CEO Kevin Gallagher calls on Australia to be ‘CCS superpower’
He said Australia can become a carbon storage superpower based on its vast tracts of
pastoral and cropping land and depleted oil and gas reservoirs
