Electrification not enough to meet net zero target: DNV
Hard-to-decarbonize sectors - heavy industry, shipping, trucking and aviation - need significant research, development and investment now warns DNV's Energy Transition Outlook 2021.
Leaders - CCUS in Canada
Delta CleanTech: how Canada is driving innovation in emissions reduction
Canada has set an ambitious target for emissions reduction and implemented an
aggressive regulatory regime to support this goal
Canada leans on industry in its design of CCS tax credit
Recently the country signaled a renewed focus on the technology to help meet its
global commitment to target emissions reductions 40-45% below 2005 levels by 2030
Light, portable, cost-effective: new seismic technology changes the game
It is proving to be faster, more accurate and easier to deploy than traditional seismic
source and sensor systems that require large vibe trucks and kilometers of cable
Alberta – a renewed momentum for CCS in Canada
If you are looking for a country with a critical mass in creators in large-scale CCUS
technologies – look to Canada says Beth Valiaho, International CCS Knowledge Centre
Shell proposes new large-scale CCS project in Alberta
The proposed Polaris CCS project would capture CO2 from the Shell-owned Scotford
refinery and chemicals plant, site of the existing Quest project
Canada’s landscape – CO2 sources and sinks
In April 2021, the International CCS Knowledge Centre published a report, “Canada’s
CO2 Landscape: A guided map for sources and sinks”
Projects and policy
Update on UK CCS cluster projects
An update was provided on the UK’s CCS cluster projects, Northwest England, Wales,
East England and Scotland, in a CCSA webinar on July 21. By Karl Jeffery
Assessing the sustainability of chemical and polymer production
The latest techno-economic report from the Carbon Dioxide Capture and Conversion
Program collates and reviews the sustainability of various chemical process routes
Seismic tech needed to make the CCS revolution a large-scale reality
Simon Illingworth, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Blue Ocean Seismic
Services, outlines some of the new technologies being developed to ensure marine
seismic is cheaper, faster, less carbon intensive and fit for the future
Update on Shell’s CCS perspective
Al Tucker, general manager CCUS at Shell, gave an update on Shell’s perspective on
CCS in a Society of Petroleum Engineers webinar on August 23rd. By Karl Jeffery
UK Government must commit to CCS technology by 2030
The UK government must commit to the wide-scale deployment of new GHG removal
technologies by 2030 according to a report by the National Infrastructure Commission
Public give conditional support to CCUS rollout
Participants in a new public dialogue generally supported the use of carbon capture
usage and storage as part of a pathway to meeting net zero
VSA, membrane and PSA for steam methane reforming CO2 capture
More than 95% of the current hydrogen production worldwide is derived from fossil
fuels and Steam-Methane-Reforming is the dominant technology
Capture and utilisation
Which products are best suited for emerging carbon capture technologies?
A University of Michigan study has analysed 20 potential uses of captured CO2 in three
categories: concrete, chemicals and minerals and ranked them by climate benefit
Transport and storage
SECURe project makes CO2 storage recommendations
The SECURe project has advanced knowledge of how best to manage subsurface
geoenergy projects involving CO2 storage and unconventional hydrocarbons
